    Question Runner Fee??

    Ok placing my first Mailorder today, and I am being charged a shipping/handling fee of 15 bucks (this i can understand), and then 15 bucks for a runner fee at 3 bucks per item??? Is this the norm here? If it is cool, but I never read about that part, figured it was just in the price already.

    Sounds like you are getting gear from Mex. The way I understand it is someone (source in the US) has people (runners) that have no problems getting back and forth over the boarder. They are sent with a shopping list, bring gear back, and then enroute to you. $15 doesn't sound too bad, good luck.

    $15.00 for a runner is a great price compared to the fines you'll pay if you got caught bringing it across the border. I usually pay 10% of my total order but most pay 20% in J-town.

    %15 seems to be the normal runner's fee on an order, if you order large enough, some places will waive the runner's fee...

    sounds like you just pick it up at the drive-thru, or does it get delivered with the pizza!

    I think I know who your going through bro. If it is the same guy, I think, then he does have people bringing it across and no, $3 per item (except amps) isn't bad at all.
