By default they set shipping & handling fees at $3.99 and you can choose to do expedited as well for $6.99 - there is also an international shipping rate. I've seen some other shipping prices as well, but they must either be item specific (due to weight) or some sort of special arrangements with the seller (I can't verify that this is the case).

I love when people choose expedited because I always ship very quickly anyways, and it's just a bonus for me :)

Hi irfanlatken,

I read that only Amazon Pro Merchant account subscribers can set their own shipping rates. This may help -
