Theres a trick to the ebay selling process. You list an item at a real low price to avoid a high listing fee and ending value fee. Then you mark up your shipping cost to cover what you expect to get for it. Ebay doesnt charge a fee on the shipping you qoute. It's genius. That way you get the price you want with no questions asked. Pretty sneaky if you don't know how Ebay works. grin

Yea, that is the Ebay way to sell, cheating bastards. I remember back in the day when Ebay first started people were not pulling crap like this. It was when everyone started to pull crazy shipping charges that I stopped Ebaying.

There are a lot of places that do that, not just ebay or online. Most places who do a lot of shipping gets discounts from the shipping companies. What these companies do is usually charge you more then if you were to go to say ups and fedex site and look up the rate, but in reality they are actually getting a discount on the price you would see on the ups or fedex website..

For the first one on the top, I've seen them around in shops where I live (Singapore). Can help you get if interested. Looking at $14 shipped via registered mail to your address in 9-12 days. PM me if interested.

That's because they have since jacked up listing prices.


As long as you can read, you won't get jipped.

Yes, they are. But, Remblem sells true TRD for $18. The ones in question came in unmarked packages, TRD lables everything. So I'm sure these are fakes. thumbsup
