What's up with "ship only to 48 contiguous state"? Hawaii guys are willing to pay for shipping. Just give the shipper the zip code? If the item fits in a USPS flat rate boxes, it'll be just the same as if your sending it to the next city from yourself! You travel the same distance to the post office or other carrier, wether you're shipping across the sea or within the US continent. I don't get it! 808Bagger in the 50th State..

I typically state that when I'm selling something and i'm paying for the shipping. You're right though, we should just stick with "buyer pays shipping".

I always say plus shipping. You want to talk about high shipping, I've shipped things to Australia and they pay and it is out of control.

Buyer pay shipping, I don't mind but I get annoyed when they exclude 49 & 50th State completely. I can see if seller will pay for shipping within the US continent, but I don't understand why they don't give the option for others to pay for shipping and insurance. I've sold parts on eBay, and if I wanted to make my item attractive, I'll say free shipping, insurance will be a little extra charge. Hawaii and Alaska got it bad...I shipped a set of triple trees, to Canada, that fit in a $10 or a $15 flat rate box, it ended up costing me $35 which took about 2weeks and it had to clear customs. I know Hawaii doesn't cost that much overseas from US then it is from Hawaii to Canada...

Hawaii and Alaska is no big deal.

Everywhere else is kind of a pain in the ass with customs and rediculous shipping charges.

I really don't care where it's going as long as the buyer agrees on the shipping. I've shipped stuff to Australia, which seems to be the most expensive from my area, and sometimes the shipping to them was higher than the cost of the item and they had no problem paying.
