On Friday, I won 5 auctions from the same ebay seller. $0.01 each. $2.75 for shipping, FOR EACH. The seller won’t combine shipping, despite it being listed as part of the auction. Ebay CS told me that sellers don’t have to combine shipping, and aren’t obligated to do so, and it’s nothing they can reprimand them for. I totally understand not combining shipping on larger items (video games, clothes, etc), but we all know these are baseball cards. They could all fit within a single envelope, with hardly any additional weight. So, what would you do?
Pay the shipping and give them five 1-star ratings? Not pay and tell them to go stuff it and take the negative feedback? $14 isn’t the end of the world, but it’s sort of the principle of the thing on this one.
