Goodwill Auction Site Various Cities Around US auction Goodwill donated Items GOODWILL ONLINE AUCTIONS RIPPING OFF CONSUMERS WITH SHIPPING & HANDLING

I recently bid on a pair of earrings within the Goodwill Auction site that weighed under two (2) grams, (picture of earrings on scale within listing). I checked the shipping and handling fees and they totaled $11.02. There has to be individual state consumer protection laws against these high fees. If readers agree, please assist in reporting and finding state-by-state consumer protection laws.

my question is why are Goodwill Auctions charging a handling fee based on sale price? for example:

Sold by : Goodwill Industries of the Redwood Empire
Shipped from : Santa Rosa, CA 95404
Shipping Carrier: UPS
Address: CA 94941 United States
Shipping: $12.61
Handling: $4.00 (5% of current price $79.94)
Total: $16.61

the item is owned by Goodwill albeit by donation but still the profit is 100% Goodwill's because the items are not on a consignment basis. you're paying a very high shipping rate and they utilize used boxes for shipping so there is no expense for materials except for packing. everythying should be covered by the shipp[ing charges. so why are they charging a handling fee based on selling price? my thought is that there is a possibility that it is a tax added onto to the selling price and should be considered as such and be a deduction. any thoughts on this ?
