    I finally used the POL option for the first time. I usually just ship when I buy. I ordered Warcry today and used the POL. Why was I charged for shipping now? Also, how will shipping charges work when I add more orders?

    The items are readily available so you will get an initial shipping charge.

    Here is more info on PoL shipping:

    I read the shipping quotes but will what I have already paid towards shipping count towards future orders? Example: UPS is $6.49 + .90 a pound. I got 2 pounds with the first item I put in. ($6.49+$1.80=$8.29) So if my second item I put in is another pound, will my total on shipping be $9.19? ($8.29+.90=$9.19)

    Yeah if I have some big items coming I am very patient. Last time I waited 4 months to ship mine. Had Takara Predaking, Primus, Fansproject Protector, a ton of Marvel Universe figures, United Megatron + much more and shipping was like $21

    you ship a POL with like 10 Deluxes, half dozen legends, a few RiD figyres, add another 10-15 SW/GI Joe figs, and then slam a BMF or the Big AT-AT on top... the savings are mind boggling.

    This is my first time actually building a POL, and I've found myself buying more things, just because it's so nice to have to pay $5+ shipping for a toy I want.

    I just used POL for the first time, pretty much twenty items, shipping was 18 bucks, can't really beat that. Definitely gonna implement this more often.

    I had the same question as the OP and got a quick response from BBTS.
