d10-2You are required to accurately describe the condition of your game. This entails inventorying all parts including inserts. Should you find your game is in lesser condition than you originally listed it. Edit the listing or delete it.

d10-3Unless stated, it will be assumed that your game is the most recent printing. If the primary language is something other than English, this needs to be clearly stated, even if the game is language independent. Please acknowledge questions to all of your listings.

Edition: Multilingual 2nd
Ships: Free to all 50 incl MPO's

d10-4 Add sweeteners by typing the name of the game into the condition description of the primary lsting.

So for this service do I need a special box to put the game in? Or will just any size box work for this? Just trying to get the reduced price, thanks.

There's a suggested packaged box size when you put in the game name, but you can put the dimensions for any box and get a price.

When you put in the name of the game, it pulls from amazon's data on the game weight + box weight + packaging. It also provides the final package dimensions the game box is put in.

You can override any of those quantities when you enter the information to fit your own final package dimensions.

Hi,

I noticed new items are not showing up when I add them in "All Item" filter. When I do "My Items" I see them. Is anyone else experiencing similar issue? Thank you.

You've got the "Most Wanted" filter on, change it back to "Most Recent" to see new games at the top.

Hi Ben,

Though I am registered and resynced my BGG collection, neither my "wanted" nor my "haves" are showing up - am I doing something wrong?

The BGG API has been having issues, it just timed out on your last attempt. I tried it again, you're all in-sync now.

Quick question. I noticed that some games say "Free shipping to CONUS only" (or "lower 48 States). Is that something we're supposed to say if we only want to ship to the U.S.?

No, most of those statements are just pulling from people's BGG condition info. Owner pays for shipping.

There have been debates about shipping to Hawaii/AK/Guam/PR/APO/FPO/DPO being more expensive, it's marginal and a pretty extreme case (there aren't many math traders who fall into those categories) but with discount shipping service it's all a wash.

We’ve updated ship.abecorn.com to include USPS and FedEx. You can automatically fill out the labels with a user’s username and fill in the game weight (and suggested box dimensions) with the game name. Feedback is appreciated if you use the service.
