Like he said, unless agreed upon otherwise, the consignee or reciever of the firearm pays the transfer fee to his FFL.
If you are shipping one (by the way, you can ship it yourself. You do not need an FFL to do it for you), whomever you shipped it to, care of their FFL, will pay to have it transferred.
If you are receiving one, you'll have to pay your FFL for the transfer.
AND, if his FFL requires that it only ship from an FFL (which is not required by law), I'd make him/her pay for the extra FFL fees.
