Cost $4.85 yet charges $15.00

You'd think Millenicom charging $15.00, they could have a done a little better (especially when that shipment cost them $4.85).

Its not all about $4.85 shipping. You have the shipping to set up and pay an employee to pack it and label it. Not out of line to charge $15

It was a USPS label created online. At least they could check the "box" online that says "do not show postage amount on label".
That takes about 3 minutes to create.

jus saying, $4.85 for USPS ain't all it takes to ship a package, you add 'Delivery Confirmation' and 'Insurance' cost goes up... do this daily

No biggie. In the orig post, Obviously Millenicom did neither.
You really CAN click the option to NOT show the shipping $ on the label. I would have felt better without seeing it on my box.

On another note. Anyone wanna buy a HP Touchpad?

I buy a lot of stuff online and most vendors don't charge extra for packing the product their selling. As a matter of fact, many don't even charge for shipping. These guys don't use shipping as a way to make a few extra dollars.

And I can't believe that they sell and ship that much product. I bet they have office staff package and ship. And I do know a little about shipping. I ran a warehouse for 22 years!
