FOB doesn't mean Free shipping. It stands for FREIGHT on board.


You said earlier:

"Bro, RC timer is FOB. Freight on board. NO Shipping costs."

Maybe you can explain the distinction between "no shipping cost" and "free shipping". Sorry but I don't get it.

Ok, it should have read more accurately no ADDITIONAL shipping costs.

Typically when you talk about a shipping cost, it's the cost of the items + a rate to ship over and above the cost of the items. This is why I hate E-bay.

Yes, 1080p 12 MP Digital video Camera, $9.99 + $200 shipping.

Well, not quite. For example you could have bought the same 10 Y extensions, with air mail shipping and tracking, for $11.97 from HobbyKing, saving $1.02. As I said, there is no such thing as free shipping.

i dont know, often ill pick an identical item from a list in fleabay that has the same price as others, but no added shipping -they, and i, call it free shipping - i get another 100% positive for the transaction, and they get another 100% positive for the transaction from me

That happens only rarely because it is a violation of eBay policy. If you see an item like that you can click a button to report it, and eBay will sanction the seller. I buy and sell frequently on eBay, have gotten some great deals, and accumulated a 100% feedback score. I love eBay.

1 Chinese yuan = 0.154149787 Canadian dollars

so 200 000.00 Yuan = 30829.9574 Cdn dollars. I don't think it's a conversion problem.

My order from Honk Kong left Hobby Hot on OCT 21, it arrived in Vancouver on OCT 22, and has been in customs ever since. Go figure .. no change on the tracking site as of yet...

tracking is not 100% accurate. it may be on a truck and just hasn't been scanned yet or it might be sitting in customs still.

It's been my experience that items coming from Hong Kong to Canada usually arrive on my doorstep around the 10 business day mark. Based on that, you'll probably get it between Wednesday and Friday of next week, possibly earlier.
