  1. Just got a sale from Australia for 29 books (Order #129560). Postage charged to the customer: $68.10. The weight of the books with bag and board alone is 6 pounds - not including box or packing material. Cost of shipping 6 pounds to Australia is $69.67 - WITH DISCOUNTED SHIPPING. So I'm taking a loss even before packaging these for overseas shipment. By the time I box these up and put in packing material - bubble wrap, etc. - it's gonna be 8 pounds. So I'm going to eat almost $20 in shipping costs on a $85 order, not to add that AA is also going to charge a commission on the inadequate shipping charged for this order. Needless to say, AA has to get their shipping charges in order.
  2. I know what I would like to see is that in ComicBase, a sold book is shown in the inventory as sold, and the amount it sold for in CB. Then a report we can get in CB that would show book, date sold, amount sold for and gross profit (purchase price - sales price). Currently, the book just gets removed from CB, so there is no record of it in CB anymore, much less if I made money on the sale or not.
  3. While I agree that the USPS examining/opening Media Mail packages and either returning or asking for additional postage if comic books are sent is not consistent, they have been completely transparent - not capricious - about whether comic books are allowed. In fact, they have specifically stated that comic books cannot be sent via Media Mail. Personally, as a seller who does not use Media Mail for this reason, I would like to see AA take a stand here and specifically add into the seller rules/agreement that Media Mail is not permitted if you sell via AA. It would level the playing field, IMO. AA postage rates that are added should also not take into account Media Mail pricing (I don't think it currently does). If you have any questions about whether the USPS is not specifically saying no comic books in Media Mail, here's from the official USPS Media Mail Service description: "Media Mail packages may not contain advertising. Comic books do not meet this standard." https://about.usps.com/notices/not121/not121_tech.htm
  4. Mark, this would be for a sale that had already been made. I had 4 copies of a book, and had an incorrect inventory on ComicBase - and my AA store - of 5 copies. All 5 sold. Wanted to know if it was possible to cancel just the one copy of that book in the order on AA. Looks like I can only cancel the entire item - meaning all 5 copies - and not just 1 copy.
  5. Is there a way to cancel only 1 copy of a multiple quantity item? Example: Sold 5 copies of a comic book. Went to pull the books, and found I only have 4 copies in inventory. In AA, if I click on that item and try to cancel, it looks like it is going to cancel the entire quantity of that item. Is there a way to cancel only 1 quantity, making the order 4 copies of that particular book?
