In addition to simply displaying shipping information when importing items, I think it would be very useful to have a "Max cost" option that takes shipping into account. That way, if I were to create a bid group, setup to win only a single item, I would say "I want to spend no more than $50 to receive my item". Then, your system would automatically calculate a max bid for me that takes shipping into account.

Right now, this all has to be handled manually, at least to the best of my knowledge, and it's very tedious.

Hello timkatje -

You are correct, currently the system does not factor in the cost of shipping for items when you set your Max Bid. Your Max Bid is only for the amount you would be willing to pay for the particular item you are bidding on.

However, I have forwarded your comments regarding incorporating the ship cost into a "Max Cost" field as a feature request on to our Product Management team for their consideration in a future site update.

Thanks for taking the time to let us know your thoughts regarding the service!
