I ask because I know guys apparently have dealers permits. They buy fish from wholesale suppliers and pick up the shipments at the airport all the time.
If I could use someone local that I am buddies with it could save a lot of money. lol
Transhipper is a person that have all the licences and permits needed for fish to come into the country.

As for your other question... I'm not too sure.

those numbers aren't the same everywhere by the way.If you are in say, Canada like I am, then there is only one trans shipper and he charges an arm and a leg. Say the fish is 20 bucks..you're looking at an additional 120 for the trans shipping. 140 is pretty rough for a fish to be shipped here with not DOA guarantee covering the shipping cost.

Yeah, that sounds kind of rough.

Ah yeah that is true. My example is just for people who lives in US.

No idea.
It really depends on who is selling the betta, and who the transhipper is.
Also depends on shipping method. ( it is highly recommended to get overnight shipping instead of 2-3 day shipping such as usps priority )

Anyway,
Another beautiful betta on aquabid that I like:

Since he's a marble, I wonder how he'd look like after a while. Marbles change patterns / colors, no?
