Don't Pay Too Much For Shipping! Wait For Your Combined Shipping Invoice And Save!
eBay has started charging sellers 9% in sales fees on shipping charges as well as the merchandise cost on all orders. If you pay for multiple items without waiting for us to send you a combined shipping invoice, you will ALWAYS pay too much for the shipping on your order. The main problem with the new eBay shipping fee charges is that they will not refund any of the 9% in shipping fees that they have already charged the seller when you made your payment. As an example, if you pay $25.00 for shipping on 5 items and the actual shipping cost is only $5.00, eBay will keep the $2.25 in shipping fees that they charged on the original payment. Instead of refunding $20.00 as we have always been able to do in the past, we will only be able to refund $17.75. The other $2.25 will be kept by eBay. The only way you can eliminate paying too much on your shipping costs on all multiple item orders is to wait for us to send you a combined shipping invoice before you send us your payment.
Shipments may be combined on multiple items that are purchased within 5 days of each other to save on freight. We always charge for shipping, insurance (if requested) & packaging materials at true cost.
