This has mostly to do with finding sellers with a lot of titles in your wishlists to save by combined shipping. Such as it is, you have to go to a specific title, then to the list of copies for sale, then to any of the seller's own shops and hopefully find out if they have anything else on your wishlist for sale.

I'd like the ability to make this simpler somehow, like showing which sellers carry most titles in your wishlist currently - maybe along with some way to prioritize the titles on the list, since they can range from "must have" to "maybe if I get a good deal and get it shipped with something else".

Also the ability to filter sellers by country in such a scenario; it's much less likely I'll shop with an American seller, thanks to the USPS prices for international shipping being mostly in the range of "ha ha f*** you", unless they have titles I can't find anywhere else.

Well the shipping is like you said all due to the USPS and international for some crazy reason.

What I can't understand is how China can ship stuff for 3 bucks with free shipping to the USA but if I ship to China or other places the cheapest for that same item is 10-15 dollars.

I know how its done and how they do it but its a racket that is not fair.

Oh I see what you'd like to get, something similar to what Discogs added not so long ago with the "Has X items I want"?

So instead of matching your Wishlist globally per title and then per shop, it would also be interesting to match your Wishlist globally per shop first.

It would be great to have such a feature.

China gets a discount.
https://www.ft.com/content/876bc3ec-aad ... 106866cd8a

All of the cheap packages sent from china started piling up in Sweden so the postal service added a $7.5 fee to all packages sent from outside the EU. This resulted in loads of stuff being sent back to china because the buyers didn't claim their packages. The bad thing is that this hurts me if I buy something from the US. In the good old days most packages with a lower value would slip through now almost everything is caught and I get the additional $7.5 fee per package.

Had that request pop'ing up again and since I've got plenty of time self-confining at home these days, I wrote the code for it!

The Active Shops now has a new filter In Wishlist (that requires that you are logged in to have a wishlist to compare with).

It will take you to https://www.lddb.com/shops.php?sort=wishlist with a pre-filtered and pre-ordered (by quantity, then value) list of shops carrying items in your wishlist.

Of course the same title in wishlist may be present in several shops' inventories, and that's OK.

The bottom stats will also give you the min/avg/max.

Also made links to your shops a little more sexy.

Since Takou is my #1 wishlist shop, he's getting the honor :-P

Added another filter for "Wishlist with conditions" and improved the visuals:

There are things equivalent to units of measurement as yet unknown to humans because the technology won't exist for at least another 10,000 years to even remotely detect a trace of it that cost more than the GDP of China to ship from the USA to anywhere else in the world.

I love USPS shipping prices. :clap:
