Question Aquabid?

Hey everyone. I have been looking at Aquabid lately and just love the Bettas they have on there. I was looking at buying one but one thing that confused me:

How do you know the amount of shipping? I don't want to buy if shipping will end up being like twice as much as the Betta (I noticed a lot of the breeders are in Thailand)

Help?

I live in Hawaii right now but will be moving back to Oregon in a few months.

The shipping will almost always be twice as much as the Betta because of the 35 transhipper fee and the other shipping expenses.

Aww dang, thanks for answering though! I found a breeder who said it would be $5 for USA but I'm not too sure about that.

That's only HIS fee. The transhipper fee is separate.

$5 shipping from Thailand, $5 box fee, $2 heat pack fee, $35 shipping fee.

Can you drive to Seattle? There's a transhipper there.

I think the price of gas would be worse than the shipping cost. LOL

Yeah that is true but yeah I live really close to Portland so getting to Seattle would be less than an hour's drive. So would I just have to drive up there and not have to pay the Transhipping fee or would it at least be a little cheaper?

You'd only have to pay a handling fee to him...Linda Charges $2 but I'm not sure bout Jeff.
