Fiverr is charging more for my shipping than I want

I’m a bit confused. I have on my gig that I want to charge $7.20 for shipping, and have double checked to make sure that’s what it’s set to. But, every time someone orders that gig, it shows that they are being charged $9 for shipping. $9 for shipping is way to much, and I don’t know why this keeps happening. Anyone else have this problem? Anyone know how to fix it?

Whatever price you set for shipping will be 80% of what the buyer is actually charged. Fiver then adds 20% for their cut from the buyer. I think this system is better than taking 20% from you, the seller. If it costs you $5.00 to ship the item, and Fiverr took 20% ($1.00), then you are always left with a net loss. I know it can make your shipping seem high.
