    I fried my scale

    I save 5% EMS if I pay online

    I have to ship an OEM ultra D and a 7300LE

    Can someone weigh?


    OH yeah I have to fedex ground a HDD and a burner
    I get better rates haha

    I'm thinking 4-5lbs


    Ok another problem.. I messed up and I didn't get the label right

    Mobo, 7300, a box and packing material might weigh around 3lbs.

    A boxed hard drive like a Seagate drive is usually 3 lbs. I know. I buy from Fry's and I sell.

    My Opteron retail weighed 2 lbs. My 7800GT was 3lbs cuz of all the crap it came with.

    I used to ship out mobo combos from Fry's (ECS + Semprons OEM) and those would always be 5 lbs.

    If you're just shipping the board and the card and the HDD and the burner without a box, I would put down 8 lbs AT LEAST to be safe. Whoever is saying 4 - 5 is bs.

    At the printing page, it will ask you if the label printed properly. You click on either YES or NO. Obviously, click on NO and you will get another chance to print.

    (If for some reason you clicked YES, you will have to cancel the old label to get a refund, and start a label from scratch, AFAIK.)

    If it timed out, the transaction may not have completed (good)--It may still be in your shopping cart. Go to your USPS Accounts page and check your purchase history.
