I'm going to have to go back to school to take basic accounting because the numbers just don't add up. How can an bubble envelope arrive with $2.50 postage, a scribbled customs declaration and an address label be worth the $12.00 demanded by the seller. As far as I can figuire that's a pretty good hourly wage they making with no taxes. People keep saying it's only a few sellers doing this. Please, someone help me, I must be looking in the wrong places because I find it's the reverse. Their are more and more sellers trying to extort high S & H charges .I saw one seller asking $19.00 S & H to send a dvd package (4 dvd's in a boxed set) to Canada. I questioned him on it and his response was that it cost that much. I have received boxed sets from California, Ohio, Florida, etc. and the most USPS postage I saw on the bubble envelope was $3.50. Please explain to me how this adds up to $19.00. Why don't you sell your items at a regular price with a normal profit and honest S & H. Hey everybody knows the big money is in S & H charges. Please anyone who is a buyer and reads this, please avoid buying from these sellers and maybe they will realize its better to reduce S & H to reasonable rates and sell more than not at all. High S&H charges means no fees or taxes - just pure profit. Sellers, please don't bite the hand that feeds you.
