I mean the item is free, postage at cost.

The reason is because I was thinking of setting up a thread for people who have unwanted paper coupons and vouchers which can be swapped with other members or sent to people but I know that paying postage might put some people off so wondered if minimal postage payments are allowed by the mods.

i think they would be allowed for postage at cost, but can't remember whether it would be in misk or fs/t forum

Deffo misc as they have no resale value.
I know I for one end up with loads of vouchers for things like calgon which I never use, like £1 off etc and throw them away, so I thought a voucher/coupon swapping or giving away thread might help some moneysavers out who do use coupons. There is a good trade on eBay for coupons too so obviously a demand for them.

Yeah, I saw that but he was giving away his stuff, I thought a voucher/coupon thread might be a good idea. Saves me putting them in recycling when i know someone else could use the money off.

It doesn't bother me paying 32p but I know it will put some people off, especially if you have lots of vouchers you are willing to send people, i will leave it down to people to say whether or not they want postage, I wanted to just get rules straight before I start the voucher thread.
