im getting tired of people on ebay asking high s+h for losse g i joes
and thy put them in a envelope with little protection i usually try to buy from the same sealer when i buy a lot so thy usually ask around $3-5 for the first figure and about $1-1.50 for any other additional figures so i usually just pay it but it starting to piss me off like the last
sealer asked 4.89 for the 1st and 1.95 for the 2nd and i got like 4 figures so that like $12.96 so when i got them in the mail the sticker
said $3.64 so he made $9.32 off of me and then i tried to ask for a
refund but he never answered and i just got 5 today and the guys asking 8.50 for 5

then don't bid as high. you should have an amount in your head that you are willing to pay for purchase+shipping. Take that number from your head, subtract the amount the person is charging for shipping, and the result of that equation should be what you put in as your max bid.
It should make no difference to your wallet.

It's never ending. That's why I stay away from the bay and try to get what I need locally and from places like this. Good luck I feel for ya.

What the heck is a "Sealer?"
As for your topic, why not ask the seller prior to placing a bid? If they don't want to work with you, then move on.

stay away from people that charge a arm and a leg for shipping. if someone charges more then 4.00 for the first figure then wants more then 1.00 for the next figure and so on i dont even buy from them. you live and you learn.

Please Remember that many eBay Sellers have more costs than you see.
*They pay eBay to list the Item
*They pay a % of the final sale price to eBay
*They pay % of Total Cash Amount to Paypal
*They pay for the packaging materials
*They spend time packaging the item and waiting at the Post office
* If they overcharge on shipping, the highest bid will be less because over 95 % of ebay buyers calculate the total cost before they bid. This also gives the seller more and eBay less.
I understand what you are Saying....
But the seller is not getting the same amount that you are Paying.

I don't pre-buy packaging stuff to ship with. So I have to buy everything when I go to the post office to ship something on ebay. So postage for an item may be 3.49$ but if I have to buy an envelope or a box for X$ then shipping and handling will be
$3.49 + $X. That is why I think some shipping prices are so high on ebay.
