You bought it. Now, how do you get it?
Individual sellers in our Marketplace determine how to ship items to buyers. This is often charged as an additional cost on top of the final purchase price.
A Seller Guided Shipping Process
Before bidding or buying, users can review a seller’s estimated shipping charges in the “Information & Special Terms“ or click “Get Estimate” on the item detail page and quickly gain information about shipping the items you want. Important to note this is often an estimate only. Once a purchase is made, the shipping cost is detailed on the invoice emailed to the buyer for reference.
Some sellers may even include shipping estimates, making it easier than ever to determine your budget prior to making a purchase.
