Thank you for all of the interest and/or purchases! The sale has started off pretty strong.
We have had a few folks reach out about high shipping calculation through the website and/or eBay.
I'm not 100% sure how the shipping is priced; we put in the weight and dimensions on the back end of eBay and the website, as well as a few carrier / class options. eBay & Shippo spit out shipping prices to you based on where you are and which shipping choice you pick. We don't get to see it until it is paid.
For a while we kept loosing a buck or $5 or shipping, so the person who does our listings slightly overestimates the dimensions now. Usually this allows us to make a buck or $5 on shipping to cover the packing material and labor(which is helpful); but sometimes people get prices that are 2-3X as much as actual shipping (which is definitely not our goal).
If you think the shipping price looks crazy (OR if you want to buy multiple items and combine shipping); just complete your purchase and put in a note for an "Actual Shipping Discount," we'll refund you the difference between shipping paid and actual shipping after we box it up and buy the actual shipping. Make sense?
OR don’t if you want to let us make a few extra bucks in the slow season, 😊 .
Quick caveat, on large clumsy items traveling across the country, shipping is often more than you think it will be
I'd say go ahead, make your purchases, leave a note; and we'll refund you on any silly price overages.
