Not sure on the shipping cost, it would probably depend on where you're sending it, but one lady said it was like $3.85, but who knows if that is true, and it could have been an old post. They really don't weight much so it can't be too bad!
I read about the water in a little baggy thing too, and it definitely works for some people. Others had issues with the water getting too much ammonia in it because their bioload is so high, and others had issues with broken shells. Some did the paper towel thing in a plastic baggy instead of a container, and had some broken shells, others had no issue. There seems to be a ton of ways to ship em, I personally just like the wet paper towel in a container best. Shipping would probably be cheaper if you did the baggy though, cause you could probably get it in an envelope, but I would be worried something heavy might squish em
I should also mention that a lot of snails kinda hibernate I guess when being shipped and can take a few days to come around once they're in the tank. I think someone even said like 5 days, while others will bounce back right away.
