Canadians: *FREE* CP Shipping Envelopes

    Something else I discovered during my reading the other night, when I found out about the 125 feedback (I've still got a few other things to check out... :)

    I didn't know anything about them, since I've always ordered stickers and forms by phone or picked them up from the post office.

    I'm not keen about having that logo, but I can put a large Return Address sticker over it.

    I am updating this first post.
    I've seen the envelopes and they are a snow white tyvek plastic (very similiar to the CP padded envelopes without the bubble padding).
    They are not padded, and have a huge colored Ebay Power Seller and the logo on the address corner (rolling eyes...).

    I don't think you necessarily have to be a Power Seller, it didn't ask me for my ebay ID.

    Anyway, they're free!
    They are worth checking out anyway.
    I ordered some today.

    Product Description: EBAY PACK
    Product Details: 11" x 17" flexipacks for eBay PowerSellers only.
    These shipping bags are attractively branded with the eBay PowerSeller logo.

    Price: $ 0.00
  2. I love freebies. Where do I order them through Canada Post or through ebay.ca??

    Thanks for the tip Lynn!!!

    You order online from the Online Business Center on the site (You need your account number and a User ID and Password). If you don't have one you can apply for one.

    Canada Post Online Business Center

    Click on Order Products & Supplies
    Type Ebay in the Search Box on the left.

    They always send supplies out by Express Post, and the envelopes are backordered unti Nov. 29th
  4. Got it!! Thanks so much!

    'flexi-packs'.... I wonder if that means they are padded? If so I am running to order them NOW.

    Jonathan, no... they are not padded.

    Usually, that would have made me think twice, but I assume they are like the USPS Priority mailers, and they are not padded either.

    It's that tough sort of plastic.
    I just got a skirt in one, and no problems at all with it.

    Are they tyvek? Those envelopes cost a FORTUNE at Staples! They're tough as nails too.

    I'm gonna transfer this thread to the online tools forum, while I am awaiting my EST Number!

    I just ordered 100, but it made me enter a credit card # (which I did - I sort of trust Canada Post). The total was 0, and I printed the receipt too.

    We'll see. I think they made a typo because the price per envelope is $&nbsp0.00

    Since WHEN have envelopes been FREE from Canada Post?!?!?!?!?!? That's usually the most expensive place to buy anything!

    (And if it IS a typo, I hope they don't cost that much - what am I gonna do with 100 ebay envelopes!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Not sure Deb (we must have different accounts maybe, but I heard someone else say they had to do that too).
    They didn't ask for my CC, so it's probably just a confirmation type thing.

    They "are" free.

    I got my shipping confirmation email and no charge. :)

    I just ordered 25, although I would have loved to order 100, but I have no idea how to do that. It is NOT a user friendly site. They too asked for a credit card number from me and at no point did they ask for my eBay id, which they would need in order to prove that I am a powerseller - nes pas?

    If I get them, I will be amazed, and if they are useful you bet I will be ordering 100 more.... if I can figure out how.

    Jonathan, I just ordered 3 lots of 25.

    I was surprised they didn't ask for my Ebay ID to proved I was a PS, so really, anyone can order them.

    You're right, the site isn't very user friendly.

    Lynn....thank you so much....I just bought a couple of tyvek envelopes from
    my local post office last week and they are a fortune!

    Off to check this out!

    That's exactly the same as mine Deb, but I didn't give a CC so I think your safe. :)
  16. dibs2002

    dibs2002 Registered Guest

    But I had to give a CC!

    How weird.

  17. I ordered 25, no charge, no CC. I did see somewhere that some items "may have a fuel surcharge", so perhaps that is why they would need the cc handy for some freebies??

    Crap....Canada Post must have ebay employees designing their site....I went in circles with my CC info, kept saying that
    it was not complete. Finally I logged out and went through the order again. And I think it worked although the last page
    would not load properly.

    So, I'm either going to get one order of
    50, 3 orders of 50 or no orders of 50...
    I don't have my confirmation email yet.

    I may order more tomorrow, but couldn't figure out how to add more to my cart (and I'm usually pretty good at 'adding stuff to my cart' :D )

    <i>(and I'm usually pretty good at 'adding stuff to my cart' </i>
    Me too Sue... :D

    I was only going to get an initial lot of 25 to check them out, and wound up with 75... lol

    There is a fuel charge on all parcels, so maybe that is what you saw Bonnie?

    Deb, you could always call to double check if you want.... but my confirmation email does say the very same thing, and I didn't give them a CC.

    Next thing we'll get a bill for $500 and then we'll KNOW ebay bought Canada Post! LOL!
