We try to offer the best deal possible on shipping and handling, and we EASILY have some of the lowest rates on Ebay. IN ADDITION to the actual postage, which continues to increase, we buy brand new boxes, fragile labels, do not crush labels, postage labels, packing tape, printer ink, and other packing supplies to ship our products. These supplies will cost us approx. 75 cents to $1.25 per order, sometimes higher. All packages we ship include delivery confirmation as well. This extra cost is necessary to protect the merchandise and to ensure accurate delivery. We are not trying to profit from the shipping and handling fees we charge. If you think the prices we charge for shipping and handling are too high, please do not purchase.
