don't you hate it when you see a item on ebay you like but the shipping is double+the price. recent example: Botcon cyclonus,the seller wants $15.30 in shipping fees. we both live in america. No I haven't bid on the item & most likely won't. I buy & sell all the time on ebay. shipping fees for a botcon cyclonus that is in a voyager sized box. ships out thru the post office for around $7.75 using 3 day priority mail services. it appears the seller has a shipping address type calculator on his auction. that measures distance+pounds of the package then calculates the shipping fee thru ebay. I live in newyork & the seller lives around WA somewhere. shipping fees was calculated thru the ebay shipping calculator for me is $15.30. Just for fun,I entered a california 91789 zip code to see how much the ebay seller wants from CA 91789 to WA. The seller wants $11.90. which is more than double than it cost to ship this item thru the usa post office priority mail services. at best since both states/zip codes are so close to each other,the usa post office shipping fee should be under $6 dollars using the 3 day priority mail services. It appears this ebay seller has entered into the weight category that this item is about 8 to 9 pounds. thus tricking the ebay shipping calculator into charging the buyer more. I have a scale I use to weigh packages when I sell stuff on ebay. the average beastwars ultra sized figure weighs about 2 pounds with the shipping box included.
