If you buy multiple bettas from the same seller do you get a discount of some sort? Or just less shipping to pay?

Depends on the seller.....some will give you a discount or even send you a "free" fish (which you will still have to pay import fees for, so it's a mixed blessing). The main thing is that....well, shipping is expensive.....so, if you're already paying $40 for shipping (for example) for one fish, then you may as well get 20 fish because you're paying the shipping anyway. But, you do have to pay $10 import fee for EACH fish, so that certainly adds up as well.

Would they let you know of the discount or free fish beforehand or is it like a little surprise? And if all the fish are being sent to the same transhipper, do you only have to pay the shipping fee once? Should I be pming you these questions?

Yeah, I am bidding on her, so please don't bid me up. I already have my max bid pretty high but she's so unique I'm kind of worrie that I'll have to go that high for her

I think it's ok to ask here, Senshine.....others might have the same questions.

The times I've gotten a discount or free fish, it's been a surprise. If you're thinking of buying a bunch from the same seller, I would ask before you bid and see what kind of deal they might be willing to make.

The transhipper has several charges:

1.) Postage (I would bypass Canada Post in your case and ask about FedEx or something like that....Canada Post is NOT very good at delivering fish!)
2.) Box fee (usually $5 or so for the Styrofoam box fish are shipped to you in)
3.) Heat packs ($10 for 3 or $4 each.....depends on the number of fish....and, of course, the weather)
4.) Import fees ($10 PER fish.....this is what adds up when you buy multiple fish.....it's like a handling fee.....and very expensive in Canada since there's only one transhipper that I know of and no competition driving the price down to something more reasonable like in the U.S. where it's only $2 or $3 per fish).
