You think someone selling a two dollar postcard
is going to put it in a 3/4-inch thick package?
Many sellers likely do just that.
If they use PayPal shipping, they must use at
least Delivery Confirmation, and the cheapest
USPS service with DC is First Class Parcel (FCP).
The PP/PB/USPS process won't generate a label for
First Class Letter. FCL does not offer DC, and the
preposterous new e-Return Receipt service doesn't
qualify for PayPal SPP.
It is relatively easy to send even a postcard by FCP.
1. Place it on one face of a 3/4in block of
styrofoam slightly larger than the card.
Tape the label over it.
2. Put the card and a similar styro block in
I have received both types of FCPs.
But sure, when something approximating "tracking"
is not required (and the customer hasn't indicated
a desire for it), it is generally more economically
rational to just use a plain envelope and a stamp,
and skip the PP Shipping altogether.
