No, not a huge rip-off. Just $3.18.
I bid for/bought a computer part* from an on-line reseller who sells through ebay. He charged me $5.99 for shipping. He sent it via USPS and the postage was $2.81. The packaging was simply a legal sized amber envelope and the part was wrapped in plastic, probably cost him about 50 cents if he buys the stuff in bulk.
So, did the guy make a few extra bucks on the shipping charge? Is this typical on ebay?
Thanks for any info,
- The part is a 24 pin to 20 pin converter cable for an ATX power supply. The weight is pretty neglible and certainly is not a fragile item.
