It could work either way for packages or selling them individually. It depends on whether or not people need or want all of the kinds of plants you are offering. I generally lean toward buying one certain individual plant and if the same person happens to have more of them, I'll bid on just the ones I'm looking for.

A big thing is to get all of your details worked out before you post so you don't forget something like "will ship to the US only" or important things you don't want to have to go back and edit.
I always type mine out in Word first, then copy and paste it.

Other things (aside from the good photo) are:
Good communication. I've had some who will barely grunt out a bill, and won't tell you when or how they're going to ship, and I won't do business with them again.
Always leave feedback (positive if at all possible). But I've made it a rule to wait until the person has received the item and says it's okay before leaving it (if I don't know them). I got stung by a deadbeat once, and that was enough.

For shipping, it's best to use heat packs and something like packing peanuts this time of year. I've used the hand or body warmers you can buy in the sporting goods section of most stores with good luck, but if you want the 30 hour ones, you can usually find them at AquaBid.

Good luck. Sorry, I didn't mean to write a book.... :roll:

I would never add the surcharce, but why would it be against Paypal's policy when they charge you an extra 3% for credit card payments?
I agree, it's best just to figure it into your price to start with if you're worried about the few extra cents they charge.
