cheap dress expensive shipping that's what i thought when i saw this gorges dress on eBay .. its an evening dress.. so beautiful cost only $12 but the shipping cost 99 uru maybe round $120 , I'm not sure .. but what I'm thinking that if i bought like 4 dresses would the saler consider lowering the price of the shipping for me!! or should i forget it and look for better deal? what do you think ..what would you do ?

I think you should report that seller to eBay (unless they are shipping a very heavy dress or from far far away!). People used to do that all the time, they would sell something really cheap but make up for it in the shipping costs. Now eBay's policies forbid it. So you could report that person to eBay.

If you report it, they'll probably just increase the price of the dress. Which is what eBay wants them to do though, because that is more honest. I'd still report it though if you're pretty sure the shipping is a rip off. If it's a heavy dress and must be shipped in a large box (like if it could not be folded), then I guess the shipping charges might be correct. But if it can be folded into a smaller package, even coming from the UK I think those shipping charges are too high. You can try doing estimates on the website of the shipping company they are using (UPS, FedEx, etc.) and see if this shipping amount could possibly be correct.

In my opinion,if you like the dress,you can chat with the seller and ask whether he or she can low down the shipping price.I faced the same thing as yours before,I don't know why the shipping price so high for your dress.May the seller be far away from you?To me,if the shipping price is so expensive,I may give up.After all,it is not worth buying such a thing.
