Hidden Shipping Charges
How many times have you finished adding items to your cart, checked the price, proceeded to checkout and only later found out that the price is actually higher? Huh? What’s that about?
Well, you may have just stumbled upon hidden shipping charges. This may even happen if a website advertises free shipping but, in fact, in order to benefit from free shipping you have to pay a membership fee.
Don’t fall into the all too common trap of continuing with your order despite being hoodwinked into paying extra. Before you order, make sure the website is totally honest about any extra fees- actually, you should do this before you look through the online catalog!
A good way to avoid extra fees is to simply opt for a pick-up instead, when you simply cannot go around it.
