Recently, I have seen a lot of differences in Haz mat Fees, $10 to $45. Who/what mandates these fees and actually receives the $$$? What is the true HMF or is it variable, if so what determines that? I had a retailer tell me yesterday that the reason he did not have any primers was the $45 HMF, so he waited till he needed a very large quantity. I came home and checked two online retailers and found one was $9.95 and the other was $19.95. What Gives????

I've always thought it was the carrier that charged it. UPS and FedEx.

The carrier sets the price, and the seller pays . For example FedEx $32

When you see a lower price, the seller is picking up some of the cost as an incentive to buy from them.

Please remember, I don't charge shipping, HazMat, or sales tax.

Thatís the published walk up rate. When they sign contracts to ship through fed ex they lower those rates.

But yes companies are offering deals to move product because supplies arenít selling themselves anymore

Dan, I do not know how your operation works, but I would suggest being careful about advertising no tax on sales within Texas.

I have a friend who ended up owing the state a fair amount of money when they decided to rule his "brokering" as "resale" activity because the other buyers were funneling the payments through him. It did not matter that he wasn't making a profit on the transactions. They wanted sales tax on each shipment.
