Was wondering what the cheapest way to ship a video game would be. I'm thinking of shipping using USPS via priority mail. Was wondering if I could use First Class Mail Package shipping method (also via USPS), but wasn't really sure if I would be allowed to do so considering it's a video game and on USPS website it says you're only allowed to ship such items as handwritten/type written material, and bills and statements of account. But then it says that you can use First Class Package mail for advertisements and light weight merchandise. Wouldn't a video game be considered as light weight merchandise?
I ship games and DVD all the time for Goozex trading.
For a single game USPS First Class is definitely the way to go. $2-3 plus the cost of an envelope. If you'll be doing a lot of it, then buy the padded envelopes from eBay. I know that's a funny directive but it's the best place to stock up on them.
Priority is only really a good option when shipping multiple games or heavy/oversized items like box sets or special editions. If you use the automated post machine in the post office it'll give you both prices for both options so you can pick the better buy.
