Hot or Not?
Free w/ Shipping Cost Posts
I want to talk about deal posts that are labeled as "free" for the item but have an associated shipping cost, as they seem to really annoy some members.
It is not the posters' fault that is how they chose to sell the item on a site, and I don't think deals should be penalized for that. Now if you think the total cost is just to high that is one thing, but it don't think they should be voted down for the other.
If that seems to much, then perhaps we can all agree that in those cases where an item is "free" but has shipping costs, that on those rare occasions a poster can switch the two costs. i.e Place the shipping cost where the price is, but then mark it as "free shipping". In either case the math works out to be the same, but without the whole annoying some members because shipping is charged.
Any commentary on this idea?
