Somebody got a deal for $26.00. Shipping sounded high, would have been $32.29. I have shipped a lot of skis by UPS and never had to pay more than 20.

Just about every auction I see for waterskis they want to financially cripple you on the shipping. I know darn well that it doesnt cost $45 to ship a waterski. I have seen several prices in that range, lots of them over $30. Rediculous!!!

$30 sounds reasonable to me. I have not shipped a slalom ski (yet, I have a Maheraja ro sell), but have shipped, a kneeboard, and surf boards UPS and it can get dang expensive. [edit] never mind the last question - I just read ski King's post.

Ski King, did you ship with bindings attached? Did any of those skis go cross country, or even half way?

when selling on ebay you are charged a percentage of the final sale price but not the shipping - i bought a set of poker chips with buy-it-now for $1 but the shipping was $50. i was happy with my overall price of $51. if the chips were $50 and the shipping was $1 i would have made the same purchase, however, the seller would not have made as much on the deal.

I shipped 3 Maherajah blanks from PA to NV, I had the skis taped together and shipped in the box I got my Mapple with binding in. Cost was less than $20.00

.... I have a Maheraja to sell....
I may be interested, what do you have?

Yep, I got a USB cable for my cell phone the same way. Ebays costs to sellers are going up and that is a common work around. I dont mind as long as I understand and don't feel like I am being ripped off.
