This must be a real recent change as a sale I was the buyer in a sale just last March that included this outrageous shipping component.I asked the seller why so high on the shipping and he gave me the explaination on how Ebay does not take a percent of shipping. I complained to Ebay about the shipping cost and they simply suggested I not purchase the product (while acknowledging that it is against their TOS to place shipping any higher than required). If Ebay has stopped the shipping gouging problem then it is for the better.
