I'm a new user on this site and it's been amazing to me! however, is the shipping posted for the .5lb really true to size? because I have stuff that is just over that half a pound mark and I always have to go on to the next shipping size. why do I keep reading 13oz if the label only allows half a pound? any answers would be appreciated! thanks!
I've always shipped up to 13 oz with the .5 label. I've never had any issues with it.
I think vinted should have a label maker. Like you put in how much it weighs and it makes the label for you for the buyer to purchase for that price or at least close to it. when i but something from ebay or wherever and paypal makes my label anything under 5 oz is normally under $2 so all the tiny things im selling are being over charged for shipping. sometimes its better just to purchase and ship outside of vinted. :/
I have messaged vinted about their shipping a few times.
This last time they agreed that something needs to change.
My items weigh usually 10oz and I don't feel comfortable sending it .5lbs. I am not sure if I would be charged for the shipping cost (which I have already paid for my own supplies to ship also) if USPS decides to send it back. Also, the customer may refuse to pay any overage.
Definitely time for a change with the shipping. People would be much more likely to buy if the shipping costs were just a little more reasonable!
