As the subject line states, using a “URL load” search, shipping costs don’t show up (most of the time). Just as bad, I selected “free shipping” within ebay (plus other criteria) and copied the resulting URL into jbw for my “URL Load” search. It’s pulling in items that do not match my criteria – in particular the free shipping. I’ve already gotten screwed on this by winning a bid that I presumed was free shipping (since that’s the criteria I set) but it wasn’t free shipping. Far from it. Now I can either pay or get a bad rep, the seller is not happy and neither am I. I hope this dangerous and costly bug gets fixed extremely soon. I’ll have to discontinue using jbw until it gets fixed which is sad considering I’ve only been using it a few days.

Did you check the actual auction for “free shipping”?
I find that many auctions offer “free shipping” but only to certain countries.
For ebay.com auctions shipping might be free within the US but nowhere else.

I’m using 2.5.6, and it won’t pull the Shipping costs in, either.

I’m in the US, and everything I’ve been looking at (so far) has a flat shipping fee, not based on distance or any such thing.

Since i just started using the program a few days ago, do I have something set wrong, or am I having a blonde moment?

Dropping auctions into JB also fails to pull in the shipping costs for me, too – I think the field name doesn’t match. Prior to 2.5.x there was no problem for me.

Yup. I’m using v. 299.pre5. It is pulling in shipping costs from Canada, but not from China or the USA.

Is there another setting for shipping costs other than the “shipping column”?
