I have never seen anything this price before

I need new cushion covers for the van, we never liked the ones that came with the van and have always used feather filled with cotton cases. First stop Amazon, nothing I like there, but just look at the price of these.
How is it possible?
click to expand of course.

I have no idea how much a cushion cover should cost but as they are charging 4.99 for postage it might cost them a Euro or two to post it so they are making a few Euros that way.

They cost a lot more than 2 even the cheapest ones.

On the right it says delivery 7-10 Feb. Mind you it doesn't say which year.

Made of flax/linen.

I will check later to see if 3 will be the same postage.

I'll wager they are coming from China, they will most likely charge the same postage for each article and will arrive when they do.

I use Amazon a lot and normally you get what it says on the tin, but on a few occasions items I've ordered turn out to be coming direct from China, there has been no mention of the fact on the advert.
I'm currently waiting for a couple of items ordered from Amazon.fr a few days ago, on the advert it was stated that the item didn't benefit from Prime delivery but would still be free delivery and the expected delivery date would be in three days time, however when I got the confirmation of order e-mail it tells me that delivery will be 24th February!

Having said that you usually get what you pay for.

China post fees are very reasonable, they are most likely set to help the seller get their items out of the country.
