    Jusst wondering. If i was to send a jiffy bag with a cd in it (in the cd hard case) would i have to go to a post office to post it, or would i just need to stick a first class stamp on it?

    Weighs very little. Will be sending out loads of them so need to know. Going to the post office everyday would be pretty inconvenient though.

    First class stamp should suffice. Can I have one if you're sending loads....

    You need to go the post office, I sent 3 CDs off yesterday to Ebayers that bought stuff from me

    You will need to, because they weigh over 60g, and if you dont count the cost of the jiffy bag, its around 60p for postage to the UK! it all depends on the weight, its cost me 64p yesterday but can depend on how big the insert is on the CD!

    If you include post of packaging, it comes to about a pound per CD.

    Yep it's best to get it weighed...now though they're not just charging you for the weight, they're charging for the size too :eek:

    If it's a single (thin) case it should be 46p. If it's an album (thick) case it will be about 60p. But then it also depends on how thick the booklet is etc.

    So it's best to get it weighed.

    They're changing from charging by weight to charging by size but they haven't done it yet.

    You dont have to go to the post office, go to the royal mail website, find out the first class price for the weight of your item, and just add enough stamps to cover this price (i think 1st class stamps are 30p or something around that). i have done this lots of times with jiffy bags, they have all got through to the buyer.
    cheers
