    FAR = Free After Rebate
    S/H = Shipping and Handling
    FS = Free Shipping

    MIR = Mail In Rebate
    PM = Price Match

    Enhanced thread title, deleted posts whose material had already been incorporated into post #1, and stickied thread. Most of this relates to posts I on occasion make, but may be adapted by others for their own personal property if desired.

    May I suggest you add GST (Goods and Services Tax) which is used by us here in AUS and P/H for postage and handling as I don't use S/H

    Is that like VAT (Value Added Tax, if memory serves)? In the states, S/H is by far more common a reference and the deals are in US $ offered by US companies. I'm also aware that the UK usually says P&P or similar for the same expression.

    We'll add them, but I have no information as to what figures those typically are. If nothing else, when members list their private property for sale this may indeed come into play.

    To quote Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goods_a...ax_(Australia)

    The GST (Goods and Services Tax) is a broad sales tax of 10% on most goods and services transactions in Australia. It is a value added tax, not a sales tax, in that it is refunded to all parties in the chain of production other than the final consumer.

    It was introduced by the Howard Government on 1 July 2000, replacing the previous Federal wholesale sales tax system and designed to phase out a number of various State and Territory Government taxes, duties and levies such as banking taxes and stamp duty.


    EDIT: Just a suggestion but why don't you sub categorize the terms by the regions they are most commonly used in to help clear up confussion.
