I prefer PWE trades to keep the cost of postage down, so I'll ship trades that way unless we discuss otherwise. Also, sorry, but I'm only trading within the US. I'm still not ready to deal with international shipping.

As far as condition, as a general rule, I'm looking for EX-MT or better for 60s-70s / NM or better for 80s, 90s, and 00s / and basically pack fresh from the 2010s to now. (I try to go by PSA's Grading Standards). I just want to mention this to try and avoid getting cards from the 90s through this year with a ton of surface scratches, multiple dinged corners, etc. There are times when I'm happy to accept cards outside of these ranges (especially with the vintage stuff), so it doesn't hurt to ask/offer. But it's unlikely that I'll ever trade with someone again if I'm not alerted about any condition issues in advance.

On my end, I try to be very strict with the condition of the cards that go onto my trade list. However, basically all of my Pokemon cards have wear on the back. I make a point of mentioning this when offering them for trade, but here's a heads-up for anyone considering sending me a trade offer for some.

I tend to prefer trading cards 1:1, but I'm not against sending multiple cards to get one nicer card or vice versa. I also stray away from trades that aren't worth the cost of postage. But I realize that what I think is or isn't worth a stamp might be different from you. At the end of the day, I'm just happy to send some cards I don't need or want to get some that I do like without breaking the bank.
