What is with some of the shipping costs on ebay. A guy wants $13.95 to ship a $10.00 card. I refuse to deal with these people. Wrote him and he said the shipping cost they had down was right. What a joke.

He can charge whatever he wants for shipping and we as buyers should factor that into the purchase price. In other ebay categories it's common to see items listed with a $9.99 buy it now and $100+ shipping charges. To be fair, some sellers have high fixed shipping prices but they include insurance and assume the card will sell for a few hundred dollars; the best thing to do as a seller is to calculate the insurance off the final price.

Actually, ebay rules prevent excessive shipping charges http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/listing-shipping.html as they reduce ebay's commission

Max - I'm not saying it's OK - I'm just saying it's common practice on ebay and I've never heard of ebay doing anything about it. It certainly is not what a seller with integrity would do save for the case I mentioned.

Was it a particularly heavy card?

If the card weighs 30 pounds it would still only cost $8 in a flat rate priority box. You can ship bricks for $8 in a flat rate box if you wish.

Here's an example of shipping costs that will affect ebays profits:

$100 shipping. That's pretty funny. Maybe he plans to deliver the card in person to the winner.

I would have a hard time justifying bidding on items that have shipping fees that are geared towards circumventing ebay's fees. 

If a seller is willing to rip off ebay they are just as likely to rip off me.
