I don't either. I charge actual shipping or less. But it still ends up being less in FVF's for most things I sell now.
Before the FVF for fixed price listings was 12% of the first $50 and 9% above that. Now it is 10% for first $50 and 8% above that, including shipping amount.
So if I sold a $150 item plus $4.75 shipping before it was $15 in FVF ($6 for first $50 and $9 for the rest). Now it is $13.38 ($5 for first $50, $8 for the rest, plus $.38 for the shipping). Not a huge difference but still less. Definitely not more then it was before.
However, for the items that have expensive shipping, it sucks.
