Placed two different orders the same day, charged shipping on both. QVC bundled them in one package. Great going Q!

@Josefina   So we're you damage or did you suffer because of it?  I guess they've gotten tired of people complaining that they don't combine orders in one package.  Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

At least it is better for environment. Infuriates me when

Am---- sends a tiny item in a huge box. Unconscionable and yet I still buy.

@IMW We are allowed to say Amazon.

Since the shipping charges are already factored into the price of the item, charging for each item even when shipped together is more profit for QVC.

But you need to remember you are not just paying a "shipping" charge, you are also paying a "Handling" fee.

Well, free shipping is available at amazon and other vendors, but when you do have to pay shipping for one garment you might order, it usually isn't as low as $3.50.

With a few exceptions, it's generally going to cost more to ship multiple items in one package than just a single item.

If they send all your orders for the day in one box charge one reasonable shipping fee. What a rip-off. I would order 1 item & wait to order the other item the next day so they couldn't do that. LOL!!!

I stopped with the nonsense years ago.

They have contracts with the carriers which provide volume discounts.
