$6.21 s/h for a tank top?
I saw Liz Lange’s Ultimate Tank Top on the List last night and was starting to order one. Loved the color but noticed the s/h was $6.21! What! Thought it was ironic that she showed how she packs them for travelling. She put 3 in a sandwich size Ziploc bag. So how can HSN justify $6.21 s/h?
If you want something bad enough, you’ll pay the shipping. lol
I agree that some of the shipping costs are too much. I was looking at a Korres two piece set, and it’s also $6.21 to ship. I would also request that HSN give discounted prepaid return shipping labels for larger, heavier items purchased. HSN has the EZ Returns Label for smaller items, but for bigger items, you have to pay all of the return shipping costs yourself. I am now really careful not to buy large, bulky items anymore in case I may want to return them.
HSN gets a BIG discount from their shippers, because they ship so many items, in the THOUSANDS, companies like UPS gives HSN a huge discount on what they actually pay for shipping. It’s all about the bidding and the contracts. The more powerful a company you are, the better deals you get from shippers. I detest paying $5.95 shipping for a tiny little item that weighs less than an ounce, so yes, I hesitate to buy things when I see the high shipping charges.
SSC needs to get a grip on the shipping charges. On many sets, it’s 7 dollars or more. That’s too much and has already caused me to skip some purchases…too bad as I like the stuff but I’m not paying that much over and above the product price.
The Q seems to be shipping many of the products that they sell for $3.00.
Shipping charges are a necessary evil of online/tv shopping. I have a store website and
until I started shipping out packages, I didn’t agree with the charges. Shipping charges include not only postage, but also shipping materials. For example, I pay .29 for the actual package label. .25 for a padded envelope or .89 for a box. Tissue paper, packing peanuts and air packing bags add to the cost. When the Q changed their shipping policy, I figured they would raise prices. Large corporations factor in the wages for the shipping department. I don’t like the shipping costs either, but now I understand what must be factored in to the actual cost. To make myself feel better about the shipping charges, I remind myself that I am paying for convenience, saving time and gas.
I was reding some of the forums at Q ans it seems that their shipping charges went down but the prices of their items went up. I bought a ring there and it was $89.00 and now it is $99.00 Same ring. Then I started reading the comments and it looks like almost everything went up in price. They rarely have anything on clearance. I also read that sending something back costs more then Q sending it to you. I was so confused. Has anyone sent anything back to Q lately. Since I discovered HSN and EVINE I have mayber purchased a pair of Ryka walking shoes and I kept them.
slinky had lovely colored tank s.But for me they were to short for me NETTEA 11:48am 4.11/2015
WHAT ? Three tank tops in a sandwich bag ? What size is she?
I don’t think I could fit 3 barbie doll outfits in a sandwich bag !
I think if I order several different things, and they all arrive together in the same BAG or box, I should only pay 1 SH charge. Even if it’s the most expensive SH out of all the items.
Many times, I have NOT placed multi item orders after seeing the SH charges. This even includes multiple items that are the same thing… so 1/2 price SH on 2nd 3rd 4th items.
But I will say, anytime I have any type of an issue with an order…any kind of order…HSN steps up and makes it right. qvc..not so much.
I do too, I live in Hawaii and they add at least $4 on top of reg shipping and if it says FREE shipping I pay at least $3.99. I received a eye pencil today it was in a box 8in x 5ins. I pencil was in that box, waste of shipping charges.
Shipping charges are out of control . I pass so many clearance/ sale items due to the shipping . How can you call it a bargain if the shipping equals the original price ? I miss HSN fair shipping policy . I understand hsn offers more free ship items verses qvc . . :womansad:
