The shipping costs are blantantly used to steer sales to buyers within easy pickup distance.I went to bid on several silk flower arrangements, only to discover the shipping cost from Cincinnati to Detroit was more than $154 for each arrangment.
There is no way two orchid stems in a six inch pot cost that much to ship. All EBTH has to do is distort the shipping size by a width factor and the shipping cost becomes unreasonable for bidding on an item. Despite writing them multiple times, somehow they are never able to send back a correction (in three days or more) before the item closes. Check for yourself.
Take a look at shipping costs on the item you wish to bid on.
A wooden side table is $37 to ship to Detroit, but silk flowers are $154.Guess its a good way to get kickbacks from pickers and second hand shops who want to add to their inventory.
