    Wow that's great actually! A huge reason I have bought maybe just one thing off ebay all year is because those turds raised their rates to sell, to use paypal they nearly force on you, and the rest. People to offset that were charging on games like $7-10+ on a same country shipment on something that would cost $5 Priority Mail. All this was done to sell the item cheaper, then get the money w/out nickel and diming a bid with a high flat shipping and 'handling' rate.

    I welcome seeing if that $6 rate is in the gaming sales areas as a maximum. If anyone need to lube up it's the con artists pulling shady pricing in their shipping rates on sales.

    The category that was is game accessories, and what about when you are selling a HUGE LOT of things, like 50 NES cartridges? WTF THEN?

    Oh the horror, eBay actually did something that does NOT butt fuck the buyer. What the heck were they thinking.

    Exactly us buyers finally aren't getting the hose for once.

    As for the seller, if it's a choice as the other guy said 'calculated shipping' or just start selling the stuff in small bundles if you're dumping 50 carts as you'll get more cash anyway.
