I would like to manually enter the shipping cost when there is a conflict between eBay and myibidder.

Sniping does not take shipping into the account, so shipping does not affect sniping anyway.
For Windows app, you can enter it in the My Notes.

Although I can enter shipping costs in Notes, all that's visible is an asterisk. By manually filling in the Shipping field, that information would be instantly available to me.

I'll add it to ToDo list. We'll see how many users actually want it.
I think it's worth implementing it.

I like the shipping field suggestion...where is the to-do list? I would like to vote for this feature.

The ToDo list is not public. No need to vote for it.

I also would like to be able to enter calculated shipping cost (or words FREE) as this information is important to me when deciding how much my maximum snipe is going to be for.

That's in ToDo, but on low priority right now.

Sorry, but an accurate shipping cost is very important!

Some of the computer components I've been shopping this week have a great variance in shipping costs.

From several different ads, for the exact same CPU fan (Intel D60188-001), I have shipping costs of:
Free
$ 2.92
$ 4.99
$ 7.05
$ 9.00
$ 9.99
$11.00
$14.58

When you find that you can get the same item from another source for under $20 (shipping included), shipping costs aren't as trivial as you seem to think, and I think anyone who uses Ebay & got burned on shipping before will agree with me.

Deina,
I never said this is not important or trivial. The thing is that eBay still does not provide it reliably enough, especially when seller offers multiple shipping methods or shipping is calculated dynamically.

I personally set a snipe when add the item. This way I know the shipping from eBay and consider it when figuring out the snipe amount. You do the same when you bid directly on eBay too.
