This is what I was talking about. Depending on weight, the price "I" pay for the actual SHIPPING part may be 9.50 to 10 bucks. But, I charge 12 because of GAS, FOAM,DELI CUPS HEAT AND OR COLD PACKS. That is where the 2 extra bucks goes. this helps cover cost of my prices. I have to drive 32 miles to get the foam sheet. 6 miles to get tape, deli cups, newspaper..ect. then another 7 or so to drop it off at the post office. Thats money out of my pocket.Although this may have been mentioned since I didn't read page 2...
Sometimes I pay X for shipping, then I see the seller only paid Y.
I don't know about everyone else here, but I almost always buy from someone that I know gives out freebies. Depending on the sale, it might even be a really nice freebie or several almost unsellable common freebies. I'm sure every can agree that freebies are cool.
So I don't worry about the difference between X & Y because usually I get an additional T that probably costs more a couple of bucks.
Sometimes I don't get a freebie. I do shop around quit a bit & wait on buying a species I want until I can get what I feel is a super awesome deal. Usually the deals I get are awesome enough that I could care less about the difference between X & Y or getting a freebie, I just care that I got the deal first
And that's my take
Hope that makes sense. that is a very small price(2.00 bucks) to ensure if you want priority, it makes it alive, and not on my expense. whether that be reputation or LAG(which I sometimes offered with priority.)
Oh and choco. I am on unemployment. I get 210 bucks a week before the haul out 34 bucks in taxes. so I dont want to hear about being broke bud. Its 2.00 dollars!
