  1. UMMM Don’t believe it. We have never offered free shipping at anytime during the year. We charge up to 3.00 per item. Our sales are fine. Just another organization that takes surveys and doesn’t know what they are looking at. I’m willing to bet there are a lot of people charging for shipping. Besides one would have to be a dumb as a box of rocks to think that shipping is free for anything.

  2. Free shipping is simply not an option for international sellers! Most of my buyers are discriminating collectors of antiques and vintage and do not expect free shipping as a norm. And what about returns? I occasionally offer “shipping included” on more expensive items with the proviso that in the event of a return the purchase price only is refunded. There is no such thing as “free” shipping – it has to be built into the price somewhere.
