    Shipping charges

    Beautiful machine - only costs $15,850.00 to ship. Maybe I'll buy a plane ticket, take a vacation and pick this up. Ha!

    LOL! I think I could skip that one! Probably is a scam and Ebay will eventually remove it.

    For that I could fly there spend a couple weeks and bring it home with me - maybe they think the price will be low , so they will make the money off of shipping it ?

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I bet you were in shock when you saw it, weren't you? hehehe! Glad they got it corrected. Might have cost them a sale.

    And only 15 - 20 business days for shipping. What a bargain!

    It pays to read the fine print! Makes me wonder how many people have gotten suckered that way - they think they found a great deal and buy it quickly, only to realize too late that the shipping is gonna bite them.

    I think they just dont want to bother packing it for international shipping. For delivery within the UK the cost is 16 or free if you collect it , which seems reasonable.

    That seller has a bad feedback record (98% is not good), so maybe it wasn't an error, but a trap for an unobservant buyer.

    Amazing! I didn't see any correction either. Did you notice that there are "0" bids as well...imagine that!

    Got a reply from Seller!

    "Hi,

    You're right, it was a mistake but it was deliberate. Ebay wouldn't allow me to advertise globally without a shipping cost listed. It wouldn't be possible to put a price that would apply to every country in the world as it varies greatly, so as it says in the listing "please email me for a quote on shipping". The cheapest option is 100 and would take up to 30 days. Next is 120 tracked and taking 5-9 days.

    Thanks
