    Default How do you buy?

    I have noticed different sellers selling the same items.

    What makes you choose one seller over the other if they have 100% feed back?

    If price and shipping were almost the same I would go with the one with the higer feedback amount.

    If the price was the same with shipping, would you buy from the more reasonable shipping price or does that not matter?

    If they are both 100% and their price and shipping total the same I go with the one with more feedbacks.

    The Machine cost is important, but the shipping is more important. If I am going to pay 90.00 bucks for shipping, I would expect a man in a tuxedo (easy people...don't get any ideas) to personally deliver and set it up for me. I ship 90 lb Antigue slot machines for half the cost...fully insured for $2000.00.

    For Me, Absolute lowest price for machine, and struggle with the shipping costs.

    Feedback comments can be useful. Not all positive feedback is completely positive. I'd actually consider the price of shipping. If it is really low (and not a special deal different from normal shipping) then they are probably not going to pack the machine well. (For example, I worry when I see individuals selling a vintage machine with shipping for $30--there's no way they are going to pack it as well as it should be.)

    Of course, outrageously high shipping usually goes with poor customer service and other save-a-buck-or-make-a-buck-at-all-costs problems.

    In California, I have to also "weigh" in the fact that shipping is also taxed at the 7%-9% sales tax rate for in state sales. So $89 shipping would really be $95.45 at 7.25%. The item would also be taxed at the same rate too.

    But it is not all bad VG is always more than TA.

    All things being equal machine Price,Shipping,Feedback etc I would go with the vendor closest to your home as it will spend less time and have less of a chance being damaged with the shippers.
