I ship mines via First Class with Free Shipping, mines ranges from $2.00-$3.75 each, there is no way around it unless you print your own labels, and state that the dvds weigh less than 6 ounces, but if you get caught they will most likely send the items back to you, there is no way around it as far as I know unless you ship the movies without case.

Mines are 1-2 disc dvds btw, not boxsets.

I also ship DVDs media mail but,first class works.
To get around eBay's $3 shipping rule for that category just list box sets under
'Wholesale Lots'.

First class for 5 oz means the singleton DVDs right? Not boxsets

i dont get it do you have to pay the fee before you list, not at the conclusion of the listing? there has to be some way around that rule

Listing fee depends on what amount you start the auction or BIN.

Calculated shipping and add handing cost... There are no limits to handling costs and buyers only see them added to total shipping cost.

You cant add handling fees to flat rate shipping...
