Why must you pay a HANDLING FEE??
STARTING FROM OCTOBER 2008, eBay has started a new policy which now
makes the maximum SHIPPING COST $4.00 Postage for US DOMESTIC
DELIVERY. At first we thought it would not be the same for
INTERNATIONAL SELLERS like us who use this eBay Site but do not sell &
Ship Domestically from within' the USA, however after contacting eBay
about this we were informed this new Domestic policy applies to
everyone including International Sellers as well.
THIS NEW POLICY WAS A BIT PUZZLING TO US AS WE CAN NOT SHIP 1 SINGLE
INTERNATIONALLY FOR $4.00 (The AVERAGE cost to ship 1 SINGLE WORLDWIDE
is $7.00 which was previously our WORLDWIDE SHIPPING COST.
So we asked eBay what we can do about this problem, and how we can
keep our WORLDWIDE SHIPPING COST at $7.00 as it was before. First,
eBay advised us to add $3.00 to the starting price of the item in our
auction, however, many of our customers enjoy our low starting prices,
so we wanted to keep our starting prices the same. Next eBay advised
us to add a $3.00 HANDLING FEE so that our SHIPPING COST will remain
the same as before.
We decided this second suggestion was our best option and we took
eBays advice, so now if you buy 1 SINGLE it will be $4.00 SHIPPING
COST + $3.00 HANDLING FEE = $7.00 for 1 SINGLE Shipped to you from
We know this is a bit complicated, and we are sincerely sorry for any
confusion and inconvenience, but please understand this is the only
way International Sellers like us can work within' eBays new US
Domestic Shipping Policy. Please contact us if you have any questions.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND COOPERATION ON THIS MATTER.
