Default Ebay Question

I seen a couple of mosses on ebay I would like to try later but I have a question about the shipping. It says 'FREE Economy Shipping from outside US'
Does this means shipping is free to the US? Sorry if this sounds stupid, I never bought off ebay before.

post the link. There are some places in Asia that have cheap enough mail to the US that sellers can offer free shipping, even worldwide. Mosses are pretty tough, they may survive a slow trip. But all other things being equal, buy from the closest seller.

Here's the link:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fissidens-fo...item20cbed00ea

I found a seller that selling on aquabid too so I could get it from them, there's is free standard shipping on ebay.

my main concern is that you need to confirm with the seller that you will be getting Fissidens Fontanus and not java moss....if you look at the auction you see on top and other places they are saying F. A. ...but they alls state " jave moss" where it says "plant type"..................
also read the international shipping section...you may have to pay a trans shipper..

That's what I needed to know I completely over looked that part.
I'm sticking to aquabid for now on.

It does look like shipping is free. 14 days has got to be close to edge of how long a plant can stay alive in the dark.

In that case I'll wait off on it and if I want it later, I will find someone closer to buy from. Both of you have been a great help, probably saved me the trouble
