    "It costs how much?!!!" Aka Ebay stupidity

    AKA you found a kit on Ebay that costs WAY too much. Like This:http://www.ebay.com/itm/08th-MS-Team...3D271656341730
    This kit retails for 800 yen aka 7-10 dollars.

    At least it wasn't Price Gouging via Shipping charge. I've seen that way too many times.

    Allegedly Ebay caps them on how much they can charge for an item, but there is no cap on S&H. I almost bought a FA Unicorn for $20 thinking it was a mis-post and then noticed shipping was $100.

    The fees are the same with shipping. EBay made changes to the final value fee to include in the shipping price. So you can't get away in posting 100 dollars in shipping . you still get charged for selling.

    Re: "It costs how much?!!!" Aka Ebay stupidity

    I never trust the ones that have the item of like $20 bu the shipping is $100. The E-bay protection only covers the cost of the item so you could be out the $100 if they never send the stuff to you. But this is normal for all the P-Bandai stuff. I was looking for a PG blue frame Astray It went for 1800 HKD so $220 U.S. but on e-bay they start at $450 up to $580 plus shipping. They always double the price if not triple it.

    You got a good point there that the eBay buyer protection only covers the price of the items and not the shipping costs. I avoid eBay unless I have to buy it from there. Old items especially.

    Re: "It costs how much?!!!" Aka Ebay stupidity

    I've only had one bad experience with an eBay item and I'm pretty sure it was the post office failing on the delivery (my Saturday mail lady sucks). I'm cheap so I like to snipe kits on eBay, especially when the box is damage but the parts are fine.

    Have you looked at Amazon Warehouse? I just sniped a MG Sinanju OVA for 52 not so long ago. It should arrive next week.

    I do a good bit on e-bay but only from a few stores/sellers. That is ware I can get metal upgrade parts on the cheap. Pluss I get free upgrade parts with each order.
