Best Wishes!

Question:

If I buy a man's shirt for $10.00 and shipping is FREE and I live in Alaska and you ship via FedX or DHL what does this shirt cost? FedX & DHL charge a minimum of $8.00/item are your shipping charges real or are your product prices correct...sounds like a giveaway! Wink

A bientt!

All the prices are correct. Shipping would be expensive, but hopefully it can bring in some customers who will return regularly when free shipping is removed.

I am confused Rolling Eyes
From your FAQ's
Quote:
How is shipping done?
All shipping is free and is sent to the address provided by Fedex or DHL.


If I buy a shirt from you and there is no shipping fee when I return for more and am hit with shipping I would cancel the order and move on. People do not like false ads. Crying or Very sad

TheCookieLadyCafe - The store doesn't say shipping will be free forever. It's free NOW. So you return in 6 weeks free shipping may not be offered.

I do something similiar when I run auctions. I start them as cheap as possible. I expense the difference from what it sold for and what I normal charge to advertising. Auctions to me is nothing but advertising (most of the time).
In his case, he is charging the cost of shipping to a promotional campaign.

Sometimes you got to see the BIG picture to get the door to open and the buyers to come in. You spending the money somewhere one way or another, advertising, discounts, etc.

It's not false advertising at all.

It's marketing!
