Is anyone finding themselves loading up a cart of fabric online at great prices and then when you get to checkout, the shipping cost causes you to walk away with nothing? I know shipping costs are up but it also seems that some sellers either:
1. make money on shipping by overestimating what it might cost and then keeping the difference or
2. send it by a higher cost shipping option than it really warrants with no other options.
For example, just this morning, it happened to me twice. I picked some fabrics that were a really good price (about 12 yards). The shipping cost was about $11. When I added an extra dollar to each yard, it wasn't as good a bargain. Then I wanted to order a pattern with the ruler included for about $15.00. The only shipping option was Priority for $8. I don't need it in two days - I'd rather wait a few more days and pay a little less.
Am I the only one frustrated by this trend?
