Default ?? Ebay ??

explain this for me.
i bought 3 screen protecters out of china(not the first time from them) for 59 shipped.. paid by paypal.. are they getting a better deal than us??
PP cost is 29+3 = 28 plus ebay charges(??) + shipping..
no profit here that i can see.. if the dollar is worth this why are we living here

It's the same with a lot of the stuff on DealExtreme.com who are based in Hong Kong.
I can only assume the profit comes from the large quantities they must sell.

Thanks.

Be careful, dealextreme can become very addictive and you may end up with loads of random gadgets.
