People who are selling stuff on ebay to get rid of unwanted stuff is one thing, but there are MANY, in fact, MOST people are not of that sort, MOST are actually businesses, permanently selling on ebay. Those sort often charge outlandish prices for "shipping". I have seen shipping from the same region for the same item from 4$ to 40$. It's an insidious way to steal a few extra $$ from the customer. I try to check the shipping prices before I buy but most often, shipping is the last item before one presses the "submit" button. Sometimes, honest people have more than one method of shipping so you can choose but usually it's a fixt price. You have to be really careful of these theives.Quote " Was going to buy, but seller still wanted $40 shipping for me to pick it up."
Seller was out of line to try and get shipping out of you, I have bought items off eBay that were local, seller was happy to get the cash and I was on my way.
