Question about BrickLink...

Post by Thyclaine » Thu Sep 11, 2008 2:45 pm

How do you find out the shipping costs?

Is it included in the price you see when you click on "View It", or is it somewhere else, do you have to ask the person, etc?

A lot of times on eBay shipping is a deal breaker, and if it's the last one, it'd be embarassing messaging the person and realizing you can't pay for it.

Yeah, probably that.

Most of the time, you find out after you buy it. It's not like eBay, where the sellers decide shipping, they tell you the actual cost of shipping and you pay it.
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

Yea, like what Dr. X said. I haven't done it yet, but it looks like there is usually a summary of the shipping and handling on the main page, but not always and not in full detail. The cost isn't really shown to you until after you purchase it.
