The seller marks the bags the fish come in with your information and what betta it is. Plus before shipment, the seller will e-mail the transhipper and let them know how many bettas they in particular have coming and to who they go.
You should also e-mail the transhipper before the shipment and tell them how many you have coming, from which sellers, and what their aquabid title was. Then, depending on which transhipper you use, pay them as soon as possible. With Linda olson, (who is my favorite so far) She sends fish out on a first paid first serve basis, so the sooner you pay the less time your fish sit at her house. With Julie Tran (who I dislike because of her lack of communication), she doesn't ask for payment until the fish arrive to her, and then sends them off randomly, I'm assuming by whoever she gets sorted first gets sent first.
Linda olson is the transhipper to talk to IMO, she's very good with communication and will get back to you about any question you may have. Her prices are also very reasonable and she offers priority shipping rather than some who only offer express.
I think that it costs like $48 express and $25 priority for the first fish, and an additional $4.20 for each extra fish after that. Not too bad.
