S&H POLICY : Buy smart
Some buyers may think our S&H is high, but actual it is not. Our shipping includes:
Actual shipping cost: depending on items weight.
Pack fee: US$0.8~1.00 for one shipment depending on pack size.
Insurance fee: 3% of total amount
Ebay final fee: 8.75% ~13% of sales prices depending on ebay site and items prices.
Although seller pay ebay final and paypal handling fee to ebay and paypal, but actually it is always buyer's cost, sellers include these fees to the total amount what buyer paid. Not like other sellers, we put the ebay final fee on the shipping instead of sales prices, so that buyer do not pay for another cost 8.75%~13% of these fees to ebay. Buyer can minus these fees and see what the actual shipping it is. Please also compare with your domestic shipping rate, your will find our shipping is not really high, just take a bit long time for delivery because international shipping.
To increase selling, we do not earn any profit from shipping, that is not reasonable. Just add minimum profit as handling fee on sales prices only. Please compare total cost, not just shipping.
Ebay promote " Free Shipping " to all sellers and promise that items with free shipping will be at the top of search result list and enjoy five stars shipping rate.
Sellers get more business from these items because of good search rating. But actually buyers pay more cost. Please keep in mind, sellers need profit to continue the business. Sell items under free shipping, sellers have to include the shipping cost, profit and any other applicable fees to the sales prices, and ebay calculate the final fee based on the sales prices.
For example, please see below, you will find the truth.
||Ebay Final fee ( 8.75~ 13% depends
on ebay site, average 12% )
||2.28 = 12% of total price
|Not Free Shipping
||1.44 = 12% of sales price
Buy free shipping items, seller pay almost double commission to ebay, whose cost ?
Like tree, like fruit !!!
