A 7 dollar shipping price would be more like for a nice sized healthy nep, not drosera seeds.
    Yes. Often times when you realize the insane shipping costs it is too late to do anything about it. Not enough people look at shipping prior to bidding. I once was looking at a poster/print from this poster/print selling guy and his shipping costs was like $15. I didn't think it costs that much to roll a piece of paper and shove it in a tube. Anyways, I asked him if he could itemize his packaging and shipping costs so I could see exactly where my money was going... Needless to say I never heard back from him...

    I hate it when you see a price in Euro's and mistake it for USD and pay a lot more on stuff than you expected on an RO untit.

    Hypothetically speaking, right? lol. That would suck. Isn't the exchange rate like around double?

    I think I paid about 40-50 dollars more than I thought I would

    Ahh oh well. Lesson learned.

    And I hate it when someone has 2 of the same plant, with the same description, but their buy it now prices are different lol. Come to think of it, I hate it when someone doesn't have a buy it now option. When I look through Ebay I rarely even look at things that don't have a buy it now button. I don't like competition lmao.

    I hate it when I spend the money to list an item with a buy it now price, just to have someone bid on it and the buy it now feature to go away. IT'S EXPENSIVE!!!111ONEONEONEELLEVEN1

    BIN PRICE COST
    US$0.01 – US$9.99 US$0.05

    US$10.00 – US$24.99 US$0.10

    It's stupid when people bid instead of using the "Buy It Now" when the buy it now price is completely cheaper.. it's like they're looking for competition! I actually kinda like bidding on stuff but I HATE that maximum bid thing. It's so cheap, it's like auto bidding. :/

    I also hate losing. :P
