Hey Crickett!

Thanks! I wanted to make a quality part, and they came out awesome!

I'm not sure I understand the question regarding shipping however. Can your rephrase it? The customer always pays all the seller's expenses whether they're explicitly stated or not. Additionally, I've done a little ecommerce back in the day, and shipping can kill you if you don't account for it.

I have to receive, unwrap, and hand inspect each piece before bagging, and preparing for shipping. I have to print packing slips and purchase mailing envelopes, tape, label rolls, and ink for my printer.

A lot of small businesses make the mistake of not charging enough for shipping or even their product in general...they don't take into account things like returns, damaged products, lost shipments, items breaking in shipping, etc.

All in all, whether the shipping and handling is explicitly stated, or the company says "Free Shipping!", all the vendor's expenses are still passed off to the customer!
