On direct non ebay sales/trades, I can ship first class if under 4lbs and that still is not cheap, but figure $20 gets you a single figure. however, I only accept paypal friends/family, or postal money orders if I do that b/c I don't want to take the responsibility for untracked shipments.

Long story short, it is not cheap to ship at all, Amazon ruined a lot of expectations as everybody is used to free shipping or cheap shipping, but the reality of the actual costs are much different.
Fair enough Tom fully understand mate.
