listings don't show the additional postage anymore...

The postage charges used to be at the bottom of the listing, for initial postage as well as additional postage. Now they only show at the top right hand, next to the 'add to cart' button which is ok, but the additional postage is only shown once you put the item in the cart. Not a good thing.

additional postage?
Like for additional items?
yes. The postage you have to pay for this particular item if you already have others from this seller in the cart.
For me, it is an important part of the decision whether I want the item. If the additional postage is too high and I don't want the item because of that, I don't want to have to go through the effort of putting it in the cart and then having to delete it again.

That sounds like part of the new shipping prototype they are testing. I had it in my shop for a couple days and took it out as I didn't like how it worked.
I've been trying to find a shop set up that way, all the one's I've pulled up are still the same as they've always been.
oh dear, I just went through this on another site. were you notified of the change first, being a test shop?

Joy, I actually opted into the prototype to try it out but then opted out as I was frustrated with it. They are still working the bugs out and there is a team here that posts a lot about it. (can't remember name right now). I'm not waiting for them to iron out the bugs before I use it again.
It still shows. Instead of putting it in your cart, click on the little blue change link beside where shipping is. It will be there right at the bottom.
I think the stuff on the other site is way more complex, as their international shipping is missing from the listings and non U.S. shops are only showing shipping to the U.S..

Etsy just seems to be masking the "ships with another item " until a person puts it in the cart.
Also Etsy is testing it on those who volunteer, not just dump it site wide without a notice.
