I'm getting SICK of buying stuff from people without a listed shipping fee then them turning around and trying to RAPE me on handling charges.  I mean really I buy a lot of 10 modules for $12, guy wants to charge me $23 shipping and handling and he lives 2 states away.  I'm like send it media freaken mail man it will cost you under $5!  I don't mind paying a handling fee so long as its posted CLEARLY in the auction.  I don't mind paying a low handling fee $2-3 if its not posted but charging $15 for handling is bullshit.  I am getting sick of having to tell people to shove their unposted handling charges up where th sun doesn't shine!   :evil:


What do you guys do when ppl try and rob you?[/b]

This happened to me in the summer.  Guy wanted to charge $10.00 to ship a single module to me (he lives in the US and I in Canada).  When I complained he told me it was due to the extra complicated customs paper work.  I told him to shove it.

Never did get a neg though?

draco - I buy my fair share of large lots - I NEVER buy something without a posted shipping fee unless I am able to make contact with the seller first and confirm their rate.

Simple as that - everything comes up for auction sooner or later.  No confirmation on shipping charges. . . next lot,  thank you!

I also pass on all international auctions (except for clearly posted Canadian ones with stated shipping charges).  Too much trouble. . . next lot, thanks again!

Hehe fun, I normally have to pay ~10$ for a package to Europe with about 6-8 modules. And that one arrives usually after 5-7 days.

I am tired of not getting paid ontime. I dont think i screww anyone on shipping but then again I wrap my items well IMHO and if it says on the ebay calc 4.00 or32.00 for that matter and the guy wantys to pay less then I dont wrap it or ship it any better than what he pays. I could care less what he looked up and says it should cost. I use the ebay calc and give 3 choices. You pick one of them or I relist. Plain and simple. BTW I DONT PICK THE HIGHEST ONES.

Just my 2% 8O

I always put shipping prices clearly in my auctions, some items it is cheaper to send to the US than to Toronto.  Canada post really sucks.

Shipping and payment are easy. I offer 7 days for payments. If more time is needed, just let me know. If not, after 7 days it gets an NPB. And shipping is always as close to the exact ampont as possible. I don't charge for tape, boxes, etc.
I e-mail sellers and ask for shipping prices. The return e-mails are saved in a separate folder (Shipping), in case of dispute, which has happened on many occasions.

ya I need to start asking but a lot of times I don't see the stuff till the last hour or two then I don't have time to email seller....  I was told that its an ebay policy that if they don't post a handling charge in their auction they can't charge one.  If so I'm gonna start enforcing this shit, hell I have most the modules I bid on anyways so I might even pick the same shit out and weigh it mail this fucker an empty box with a prepaid shipping label with instructions, put the stuff in the box and place label on box drop off at local post office!  Included in the box is $2 for gas!

Whipe?
Just refuse to pay. Very simple. But if you bid on an auction without knowing what the shipping will be, you invite problems.

Ahh yes the infamous "customs" forms.  Where you have to fill out your name and address and the address the item is going to and the really hard part of listing the contents such as "books" or "games". :)

Shipping to Canada is dirt cheap if its letter size (under 4lbs).  $10.00 is absolute anal rape.  People try to recover ebay fees through shipping too and it adds up to disgusting and insulting fees.

I should also add the only negative feedback i have on ebay (frost_2000) is from a guy that also wanted to charge me $23 shipping for 4 used D&D items I won for petty change.  His reasoning was that he had his shipping listed for each item and it was his perogitive (sp?) to not combine shipping.  I guess that meant each one would have been shipped seperately huh? (course not).  So I politely and reasonably told him it was too much and i would have to pass on them and he socked me with a negative for each item saying that after he was done with me id be banned from ebay and paypal...  :roll:

I charge a flat $8 to ship to Canada, $7 is for the global priority envelope and $1 for handling, but I'll cram as many items as the buyer wants into one envelope for the single price.  BTW, the extra complicated customs paperwork takes exactly 1 minute to do.....

Let me see, the 161 negs in one year wasn't a tipoff you shouldnt be doing business with the guy? I mean, if you walk in a bad neighborhood at night with a $100 bill pasted to your forehead, whose fault is it when you get mugged? Plus never buy from anyone with feedback under 98%, and never buy from anyone who is obscure about shipping prices..you're only getting setup for a fall.
