    Here i fixed it up for you so you can see where you had gone slightly off.

    import java.util.Scanner;
     
     
    public class Assign5_Roberts{
     
        public static void main(String[] args){
            Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in); //create a scanner
     
            System.out.println("Enter the item you are bidding on :");
            String itemName = in.nextLine(); 
     
            System.out.println("Enter your maximum bid: ");
            double maxBid = in.nextDouble();
     
            System.out.println("Enter  desired  delivery  method ( 0 for ground four day, 1 for ground express, 2 for air shipping ) :");
     
            int shippingMethod = in.nextInt(); //reads shiping type
     
            int shippingPrice = 0; // shipping price
     
            switch(shippingMethod) {
            	case 0: //no cost
            	break;
     
                case 1:  //express
                	shippingPrice = 5;
                break;
     
                case 2:  //air
                	shippingPrice = 15;
                break;
            }
     
            //invoice
            System.out.println("Invoice :");
            System.out.println("Item :" + itemName);
            System.out.println("Your Bid Price :" + maxBid);
            System.out.println("Total :" + (maxBid + shippingPrice));
     
     
        }
    }
