There is no way that one fuzbaby diaper costs $11 Canadian to mail to the USA. I bet it would be only $5.25 Canadian Maximum!! I know cause I send diapers to the USA all the time!!! My goodness, I guess some people want a huge handling fee, that is a real sore spot for me.

It's a peeve of mine too. I just saw a used diaper I'd like to get (BIN is reasonable), but they want $4 to ship 1 diaper <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> I KNOW it doesn't cost that to send 1 diaper!!! Probably should more like $2. Anyway......<br>

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: I like how it says shipping is "$7.50 (firm)." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: Must have had ppl request lower shipping before...

Oh my GOSH! That's just ridiculous! But even WITH that big s/h charge I'd still be tempted to bid *IF* they combined shipping. Who ever heard of not combining shipping? Wow.

They are so pretty. Just think if you won two you would have to pay $15 shipping!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw"><br><br>
I am going to email the seller (who is the owner of The Baby Marketplace!) and see what is up with that.

Okay here's the email I sent: "Hi , I was interested in bidding on your Fuzbaby diapers but don't quite understand why it would cost $7.50 to ship one diaper.And with no combined shipping would I actually be expected to pay $15 to ship two diapers? Thanks ,Jamie"<br><br>
I just hope someone doesn't think wow a ten dollar Fuz and bid before they read the shipping.

I'd bet they're shipping it priority. Just a guess.<br><br>
$7.50 and no combining is just a way to ensure a higher price, IMHO.

Even with priority it is only 3.85 though, right? Or is that coming from Canada? Going back to check...<br><br>
okay coming from Canada, hmmm...I tried to send something priority to Canada and my PO said you can't ship priority to other countries...<br><br>
I have no idea, the no combined shipping is what really gets me though...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

You are probably right. That way even if only one person bids she get's $17.50 for the diaper and doesn't have to pay ebay as much because they don'y take a percentage of shipping.

I live in Canada and I've received lots of things via USPS Global Priority.<br><br>
I shipped 3 diapers & a wool cover today and it cost Cdn$5.60/US$4 for airmail. If it was Xpresspost (equivalent to priority?, with insurance, tracking, etc.) it would have cost about US$12.50-$13.<br><br>
I bet she is shipping via Expedited Parcel (delivery confirmation, tracking), 1 diaper at about 4.5 oz would cost about US$7.50 But I can't see charging $7.50 shipping per diaper either.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

i just seen those auctions and was so excited...until i seen the shipping price AND "Shipping insurance: Not offered" why wouldn't insurance be offered? right there is a major turn off on buying for me.

Okay I got a response to my email and yes she did lower the shipping. She explained all her reasons for the high shipping and the no combining. Only I don't know if it's allowed or if I would even feel right repeating what was written to me in an email with out the person knowing I was doing so. Darn conscious!<br><br>
I will say that I won't be bidding.

Jamie~ She posted on Amity about her auctions. I questioned her there and she responded: <a href="http://www.amitymama.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=116365" target="_blank">http://www.amitymama.com/vb/showthre...hreadid=116365</a>.<br><br>
Is that what she said to you?
