Many AB sellers also have a BIN (Buy It Now).
From another thread I posted on:
Ok so first, bettas are packed by the hundreds in huge boxes along with flowerhorn and livebearers. They are shipped overnight to an international airport where they are checked by customs and then given to the transhipper who has an import license.
Bettas are sorted and packed into individual customer boxes and sent out.
General fees are as follows (for USA at least):
$5 per betta shipping from Thailand
$0.60 import fee to transhipper
$5 box fee to transhipper
$2 heat pack fee to transhipper
$20 at least for shipping to transhipper
I pick up fish from US transhipper Linda Olson so Im familiar with the tranship process.
Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.
