Many of the swaps I've had lately show 2 different amounts for postage.  Ex. - one screen says 2.23, but when label appears it says 2.58.  Sometimes it's the reverse.   Any help here?

Lee,

If you are choosing extra services such as PBS printable postage or Delivery Confirmation, there are extra fees. If you are printing the wrapper without any extra services, here is the link to the  current postal rates in the Help Center: http://www.paperbackswap.com/help/search.php?terms=postal+rates.

If you are saying that the weight you are putting in is the book weight, then the system will add weight for packaging. So after you enter a weight, (which you would do by weighing the packaging AND the book) then use the pull down menu to change it from book weight to wrapped book weight.
