They probably think this helps them get sales, but when I see this, I will never buy from that person.
Are you talking about ebay? Don't you retain full cost of the shipping as opposed to having a portion taken out of the bid cost? I just go with whichever seems most legit and less expensive overall.
Not to mention the jacked up shipping costs are illegal.
When I sold stuff, I usually jacked the overall price by $10 and threw in free shipping. 9 out of 10 times people will jump on something if the shipping is free.
Until eBay took their share and USPS got their money, that usually covered the $10. If it went over by a few dollars, whatever. At least I sold the item and I wasn't wasting time with relisting.
