buyers factor this in and reduce the price they will pay.

i've been selling on ebay for years and have experimented a ton--people tend to overestimate the value of "free shipping" and will pay more than they would if shipping is an extra charge.

(i.e., they might pay $50 for an item with free shipping or $42 for an item with a $5 shipping charge.)
