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
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!
