I only ship Priority Lisa .. and basically only use the USPS.. UPS is going to be alot more money.. more then what most want to spend... and Fed-ex ground is cheaper then USPS first class but not as cheap as book rate (which I am guessing you are shipping this way)

I think it is better to be upfront with buyers right from the beginning and say I require tracking on all packages for both of our protection..

write them an invoice ..

To : Jane Doe


1- Abeka 7th Grade Math book in Good condition ..some writing in it. and shelf wear. /10.00

Shipping / 2.75 book rate shipping this includes .80 for tracking

** Optional insurance .. the USPS is the most reasonable way I can ship for you and save you money.. but book rate can mean rough handling .. knowing this you have the option of insuring your package for an additional 1.75 .. please add to total if you would like to do this .. I cannot be responsible for loss or damaged items otherwise. I am sorry.

Please make payments with MO to
and your address

Payment is due within 7 days.


MO still take 2 days to clear the bank I will ship your order within 4 days of receiving your payment

Thank you . Lisa

sending this to a buyer relieves alot of headache for both of you ..and yes you may have some people pass .. but most will like how you have spelled everything out.. plus now you have a copy of everything you may keep for yourself.
I learned this once upon a time from a book seller here 10 years ago .. who was one of the first dealers with me .. and I have used it ever since.. tweaking it for my use..

for Buyers .. have the seller write you a detailed copy of what she is sending you.. not being stupid now but which issue it is .. writing in the book .. scuffs on the book ect.. this saves you both a lot of headaches.. and you have it in writing ..
