  • Glad I saw this today. I am always looking for places I can donate and send excess stamps that I have. I sell here on Hipstamp and one other site but I have so many extras that are just not worth even the effort to sell since they are so common and …
  • I listed several new items using the new List Similar form today. It took me awhile to figure out that you MUST CLICK underneath the solid line when you put in the description - in order for the Item Specifics to update. If you do not click under th…
  • In the list few days I have created a handful of new listings. I can see if everything identified was fixed - using the single page form will be faster. However right now with the item specifics not updating - it is a pain to change at a minimum the…
  • Now I see what Carol is talking about. When I first looked at this last night - I was not even paying attention to these values. When I used List Similar - I knew they would all be updated by the system - now I tried one and it just leaves the infor…
  • I wrote a scathing review of this change on this discussion board post - late last night. This morining it is gone ?! Perhaps there was a system problem why it dropped my post but I feel like I have been censored. I am not going to repeat what I wro…
  • Well I guess I got scammed. Someone back in June told me I should look at EBAY and pick up some forever stamps at a discount before the rate go up soon. I was skeptical when I saw the roll for less than $10.00. I got the roll and just put it in a dr…
  • I guess I have not seen it yet because I never create a listing from scratch. I always pull up a current listing and use the list similar option and just edit from there. Did they ever announce a change to this ? I like it the way it is !
  • Lee, I found 34 older persian stamps that were hinged on some pieces of paper. I am not sure if the are originals or reprints. I will try to look at the catalog to identify which ones they are. I will send you a message when I know more.. Steve
  • Well my test FAILED !!! I had 3 folks use the code to get a discount on some small sales. I had more sales from people not using the code the last few weeks. So that means to me that people reading these announcements on the discussion board and ha…
  • The third time is the charm ! https://www.hipstamp.com/store/father-son-stamps
  • I keep forgetting that the store link does not automatically populate on the forum postings. Therefore - I am extending the sale until July 15th - here is the link: www.hipstamp.com/store/father-son-stamps

  • Don't get that ? Not sure how a stamp could adhere to an index card for shipping ?
  • A special thanks to Carol Brooks (Webpaper) - she had MANY (new and almost new) of the 3x5 manila cards I needed and she did not need them - so I was able to buy them from her. She is also sending me some samples of the materials that she uses - so …
  • Those are the cards - I called them 3x 5 but the actual measurements are 5-3/4" x 3-1/4". - the link takes you to a dealer and they have this right on that page "The only producer of these pages has been out of stock for several months and we do no…
  • Yes - I know there are different sizes. I have a couple of the 5 x 8's left over. From what I have read and what I can see is that the days for manila stock cards may be over I may try to get some of these - I could always cut them down if I need sm…
  • For small orders they may work but when I have an order of let's say 150 stamps - not sure how to handle things now. Are the 107 cards thick enough to prevent creasing in an envelope - the manilla cards had dual purposes - they could hold a lot and …
  • When you are shipping an envelope of stamps that total even less than the shipping cost - the post office will not provide any proof of mailing for a simple first class envelope. If there is something expensive I always go with the insurance.
  • Being disabled and walking with a cane - I had been using the drop off box - because if a handicap spot was not available - or any spot for that matter - it just made it easier. Now I will just have to make my trips at odd closed times - so I can p…
  • The Sale Has Been Extended Until Wednesday July 10. I had a few regular buyers who were away for the holiday so they asked for some additional time when they got back to take a look - so everyone gets the extended chance !!
  • I had this same exact thing happen to me the other day. I got the Hipstamp Invoice/Order and it said paid by PayPal - but when I clicked on the PayPal transaction # link - it came up with OOPS could not be found. I did not get the corresponding PayP…
  • Well - I guess I have been "breaking the law" since last January. I was not aware of any changes until today when I started to read thru this forum entry. I am not a "big" professional seller and most of my international sales (mostly Canada) are ac…
  • Well I had nothing better to do this morning - two days after Christmas to read thru the forums. I knew there was a rate increase coming n January but did not know a thing about this international rate change. I have always just put my international…
  • UPDATE - I have dropped the $4.00 minimum requirement and now it is a straight 40% off.Some folkshave complained that they did not see the sale because they were not looking at the promo tab- and it appeared as if there was no sale !
  • Well 1962 is quite some time ago ! If you adjust the price for inflation in today's values for mint then $6.00 is abut $49.00 today and $15.00 is about $123.00. I doubt those would be good guidelines for these stamps today. Except for the one stamp…
  • Thanks ! This is the one stamp I am missing from the set of 8. - TImor ! The overprints look the same . $90.00 is more than I thought they would be but this one is MNH the ones I have were lightly hinged - so that brings the value down. Just need t…
  • Thanks - I thought it was ID only but maybe it changed and I never noticed.. !
  • You need to know the Hipstamp ID of the buyer - if you just get an email it is hard to find out whom they are to get to the invoice in question.
  • I ran into this same problem again today - someone was complaining about an old order - and I had a hard time finding the invoice - I had to search page after page to go back to the date range that I needed to get the invoice I needed. This request …
  • I submitted a support ticket about this two months ago now - and I never did get a response back. I also see that I can not find a way to see a status of a support ticket - I guess there is no history of tickets that were submitted like I remember t…
