Advice on posting games and dvds required

Am going to put some xbox 360 games and dvds on here for sale, but just wanted to ask what people do when posting them.

I'm guessing a padded envelope is best. Could anyone reccommend where to get them cheap. Probably require about 10 to 20.

Also, would something the size of a game/dvd normally fall into the 'large letter' category with the post office and cost 52p to send first class?

Many thanks for advice

You might want to send parcels recorded as there are many buyers who are a pain and claim they never received their items. That or get a certificate of postage from the person behind the counter.

As for padded envelopes, I reuse old ones that I get from online orders so I don't buy mine but yeah padded jiffy bags are the way to go. It's kinda expensive if you buy them seperately in the Post Office though.

that sounds about right for the postage. i usually get my padded envelopes from a market, about 10p each, or use ones that have been sent to me. ive had some games delivered in brown paper. that works too. as long as you double wrap....

if you get a certificate of postage write this on the package. it also warns the postman that you have proof, just in case he or she is a tea leaf... 2nd class recorded delivery all the way im affraid. covers you both. never had a problem sending things this way.
