If you don't like my shipping fees DO NOT offer. The flat rate that I charge also reflects the cost of insurance or delivery confirmation as well as packing material and not just postal fees. I always discount the shipping on second items by 50% but only if the second item is won on the SAME DAY. Discount applies to the lower of the two shipping fees. Do not offer and then try to get me to change my shipping charges. Be aware if there is postal damage the post office only refunds the actual cost of the item & shipping. They don't refund insurance & handling fees and neither do I. Sorry about all this but it's become necessary.
