Excessive Shipping & Handling
Sellers are encouraged to list the shipping and handling charges in the item listing. Due to current postal regulations, it is sometimes difficult to determine shipping until the buyer's location is known. Buyer should contact the seller before bidding or purchasing an item to clear up any questions not answered in the item listing. If the seller does not list the actual shipping charges in the item listing, then charges should reflect that seller's actual cost to ship the item(s).
Sellers may charge a reasonable shipping and handling fee to final price of their item, reflecting the seller's reasonable costs for mailing, packaging and handling the item. Shipping and handling fees cannot be listed as a percentage of the final sale price. In cases where the seller has stated a shipping and handling fee upfront, the seller is not required to combine shipping on multiple items unless prior arrangements have been made between the buyer and seller prior to bidding or purchasing the item.
Sellers may not charge a buyer additional fees for the use of common forms of payment, including checks, money orders, electronic transfer, credit cards and online payments.
