Looks like the columns are swapped. You should have one more step before confirmation... see what the final billing total is?

I will bump this up as I have a related question:

I have an eBay account, on for many years now. Am I missing something here?
I can see how to get FedEx (up to 37%) but only if I SELL something and print its label using eBay label printing service. I do this often and usually it is great.

Can I still get a discount if I don't sell the item on eBay, i.e. is it possible to just arrange a pickup through eBay without selling the thing you are shipping. From BOARDSORT HELP:

If you have an ebay seller account you can also sign up for a discounted FedEx account as well.
You’ll need to op in to the (free) basic tools seller dashboard system to access the link in seller tools. You’ll be redirected to a Fedex page to create an account. You can then use the further discounted Fedex rates from within ebay, or anywhere else by logging into your account on Fedex dot com.
Rates are 32-35% lower than retail counter depending on what and how you are shipping.

Didn't readily see this, but I will try opening a fedex account tonight at home.

Thanks!

It’s been a LONG time since I signed up for mine but this should help.

My thought, now, is to create a fedex account on your own. THEN attach the eBay discount program. But I’m not positive so read everything throughly.

Thanks! I searched eBay and FedEx for over an hour and could not find it.
The boards I plane to ship are not high grade so the shipping savings would have a huge impact. I don't have enough to warrant a pallet even over a year. I got this company from Paying for scrapping these boards to a Free service that reclaims but we have to deliver (still cheaper). If I can wrangle anything from Boardsort (enough for a couple pizzas once in a while) it is worth it.

Thanks again for the help, I am posting some images in the ID section soon.
