They simply lump it together under shipping, or the more open ones do say shipping and handling. that being said though, pay close attention to many of the Ebay sellers. It is not unusual to see the shipping charge equal to or exceeding the selling price. I used to have a PDA that was so small it would plug into the PCM slot on the side of a laptop to download information into it. It was really handy since i was on the road all the time and needed to carry a lot of phone numbers and update it frequently, and it fit in my shirt pocket with room left over. They were getting old and being replaced by the fancier smartphones, which I had no use for, and I found a new one on Ebat for $25. However the seller wanted $30 for shipping.
and if you return the item they refund price but not the inflated shipping.ScottyD'sdad wrote:
E-bay charges a commission on the sell price, not shipping and handling, so some sellers inflate the shipping, and keep the sell price low! Ed
