    I'm wanting to purchase this mag Quiltmaker Magazine September / October 2009
    via digital download, but when I get to the payment info, it's charging me shipping.
    Has anyone else ran across this with digital download?

    I have written the company and am waiting for a reply. I just don't think it's right to charge for shipping when nothing is being shipped to me.

    I had that hapapen to me on a digital pattern. I backed out quickly - no way am I paying shipping on a digital download.

    The company emailed and asked why I backed out without buying.

    I answered back about the shipping charge. Never heard another word from them.

    I posted on the other thread too. Did you put your zip code in the area for "calculate shipping"? If so, I would back out, delete the item from the cart and start over. Add the item to the cart, skip the "calculate shipping", enter your shipping and credit card info, and see if the shipping charge is on the invoice before confirming. My bet is that it will not be on that final invoice. There's probably a programming glitch in the software for shipping charges, but it's probably corrected before you confirm your order.

    Here is what else bothers me about digital patterns, although convinent, why are we charge the same amount for the pattern that is shipped? Sure we are saving on the shipping, but don't you think that if a pattern was 9.99 + shipping, why would the pattern be 9.99 digital....often wondered that. Because if you think about it, they are making double for one pattern, for every digital pattern they sell, they probably sell the paper one...Am I making sense.

    I like the idea of digital patterns but they have so many pages to print out. I think they should be selling for about $5.00 each. It is clear profit for them and lots of ink for us. I like the fact that I can store the pattern on my computer and don't add to my collection of paper. It will improve with time.
