I've been looking into prepaid cards and the like. Any ideas, please share. http://tinyurl.com/MonthOfPackages <...

Re: "Packages" Duscussion

I just tried searching for all categories, under this thing, I had to give at least some characters to search so I just put in the letter A. If this experiment was really done you'd have about 50 E-books about how to sell stuff on ebay, 2 pictures of a tattoo, and a pinch of dryer lint. I've been p...

I'm just worried about shipping - free shipping is usually only for U.S. Where do you live? If it would still be total <$1 for the majority of items, it shouldn't be a problem.

Re: "Packages" Duscussion

I think this kind of thing might be well-suited for some human intervention. I propose a simple system where all interested people would get together, be assigned someone and, once a day, buy an item <$1 and have it sent to them. I'd be willing to organize this - maybe a trial period doing it for 1 ...
