Postage will be R270 for all ten - the seller neither confirms or denies this. R270 for R25 postage + R245 packaging materials. Based on current prices that would be approximately 50 meters of bubble wrap packaging wrapped around all ten. :awesome:

Bidorbuy's per item shipping fee rate isn't really suited for large quantities of items. That's why I usually always ask the seller when I'm buying more than 2 or 3 - and they 99% of the time offer you a much lower price than quoted.

I have a per item fee listed as it is easier that having to always do a quote or ask for more postage etc, however it is'nt in stone, it is a guideline and I am always willing to take a look, especially for small items ! My feeling is that if someone takes the time to ask I will take the time to weigh it and give a more accurate postage price. I can't understand some of the ridiculous per additional item fees that some people ask, R25 0r R40 for extras is crazy coz then they would need to be pretty heavy !

Exactly, when Bid or Buy first introduced this per item shipping fee rate this did worry me however most buyers do use their initiative & ask....
