Ugh! Shipping costs!

I am trying out a few different kinds of AIOs to decide which one(s) we like best. I ordered one for $13.99 +$4 shipping. (Although the seller says she ships the same day and I'm not far away from her, it took me almost two weeks to get my diaper, but that's beside the point.) I finally got it today, and it's way too big. So, now I have to pay to ship it back and pay $2 more for her to ship me a smaller size. This $13.99 trial diaper is now going to cost about $22! I never spend that much on one dipe!

Re: Ugh! Shipping costs!

i feel ya!! i just bought a size small dipe for 16.00 and the invoice had $0.00 in the shipping slot so i assumed that ment free shipping or shipping included. then like 3 days later i get a pp invoice saying i needed to pay $5.95 for shipping of this size small diaper!!!!! i paid it (it was for a swap) but never again will i buy from this person!!! i highly doubt it cost 5.95 to ship one tiny little diaper!

That is so sad! I usually try to buy on FSOT so shipping is included in the price or I try to buy from places with cheap shipping. It is ridiculous for ppl to charge so much for shipping.

Re: Ugh! Shipping costs!

Sadly, the price of shipping everything has gone way up. I mailed a package today that cost me over $7.00 to mail with just a few things in it.

The reality is that we're all going to have to pay more for shipping now. It's a bummer, but it's fact.

I don't think $4 is unreasonable for shipping (though I'm sure it didn't actually cost that much to ship one diaper), but I'm just frustrated with having to pay shipping three times because I have to exchange this dipe. It's not the seller's fault, but I just had to whine about it

Re: Ugh! Shipping costs!

yes it really sucks! but even if its a little high its does not cost 5$ to ship out ONE diaper. It can cost 2$ maybe 3 at the most really. what pp siad is true, since gas prices are up, so is shipping.........its vicious cycle I tell you!

maybe they are factoring in packing materials also. Those polymailers can get pricey.

I feel your pain, i live in the uk and wanted to get some BG of FSOT at the pin and shipping would have been $25 for 4 diapers Its a shame as the diapers are so much cheaper out there but not when you add on the shipping

Shipping has gone way up, I cost me $3.01 to ship a shirt the other day! The PO has figured out to cash in on the Internet and ebay.
