yea, Aemaki originally bid on her for me so we could share shipping and save some money, and she fell for her. So we placed a bid on this girl, and someone outbid me. I'm bummed out because I'm 90% sure they've set an autobid, and unfortunately I can't afford to outbid them.

If they discount you, you'll have to ask for it after you win an auction from them or while you are bidding. They usually won't discount unless you ask and only if you've been a good repeat customer, or are buying multiple fish this round, so don't get your hopes up too high.
You will only have to pay the shipping and box fee once, but will have to pay the handling fee for each individual fish. At my Transhipper it comes to about $10-12 per fish.
You also have to pay the $5-7 per each individual fish which is the shipping fee from Thailand to you.

Hope you get her! Took me a minute to figure out who was bidding, but I knew I'd seen that user name on Aquabid before from someone on the forum...lol. She's really unusual!

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).
If I do decide to buy a bunch I will definitely contact them then. I contacted Hung (the transhipper) a while ago and he said that the transhipping cost is $10, and Canada post fee is $50 for up to 6 fish. So I would still have to pay for the heat pack, box, and the fee from Thailand?

For only paying the box fee once, is that the case if you are buying multiple fish from different sellers? Or only if you buy from the same one?

It's for up to 6 fish from any or multiple seller/s. It's for the box that the Transhipper uses.
The $5-7 fee is for every fish even from the same seller, it helps cover their cost
For air cargofrom thailand to the US/Canada

If its over 6 fish do you have to pay separate shipping for any extra fish? Is the $5-7 fee the same as the $10 transhipping cost Hung had mentioned? Sorry for all the questions!
