Default For Sale - pin and ball lock Kegs for under $30

I'm not sure if anyone has seen this post or even if this is any good, they have 5 gal corny kegs for pin lock $22.99 and ball lock 28.99 on ebay, they are located in Florida. It seems expansive to me, it says it would cost me $37 in shipping to get it to NC. I mean I could buy a keg from homebrew store online for the same if not cheaper after shipping.

I suspect they're giving a good deal on the kegs but making up some of their money on the shipping. I recently ordered 4 kegs from Northern Brewer and they only charged me their flat rate shipping of $9.

The kegs are also non-reconditioned so you're going to need to spend another $5 on a rebuild kit.

Its a thing a lot of ebay vendors do to keep from paying a percentage of profits to ebay, because ebay does not take a share of the shipping costs.

If that's the case why don't they sell it for like 10 bucks and make it up in shipping so ebay takes less

Haven't you seen the items for $1 and $99 shipping?

Ebay changed their policy a while back and started charging commission on shipping fees

Five or six years ago I bought a sweet painting on eBay I still have hanging in my living room for $0.01 (and $99.99 shipping)

I bought 6 on Thursday. Shipping sucks only ordering a couple, shipping went from $40 for 1 to $45 to ship 6. That's less than $30 a keg and local hbs want $45 for refurbished. I will let you guys now what condition they are in

Yeah, ebay sucks anymore. They got you coming and going. It's about 20% off the top now and you still pay to insert the ad.
First guy that comes along with a decent alternative to ebay makes a billion $.
