Recently noticed that if you sell on eBay, the shipping discount ON eBay using PayPal is even better than just straight through PayPal.

Have an electronic scale, Think I got it on ebay. Goes up to 70 lbs. Goes down to one 10 of an oz.

Before that used a postage scale, super old, that went up to 2 lbs. Also have a large produce scale, up to 4 lbs.

The electronic scale works great.

All priority packages are good for up to 70 lbs.

Non electronic scale, I think it goes up to 60 or 70 pounds and it goes by ounces and then pounds and it works just fine and it is adjustable on the back to ensure it zeros out. I think it was probably 30 or 40 bucks When I bought it. Has a fairly large flat surface, although I would likely buy an electronic one now, but I've had this one for about ten years.
