$19.47 is Too Much $$$$$ to Ship a Handbag!

[ Edited ]

A Dooney handbag (A365628– Saffiano Leather Crescent Tote) is being featured at a one day only price of $253.68. What caught my attention is the price for shipping and handling: $19.47.

 

Your S&H charges were always uncompetetively high on certain handbags, but this takes it to a whole new level. This is a good way to alienate your customers, IMO. S&H for Dooney bags is free from many sources.

 

A potential buyer would have to think twice before spending this much— plus tax where l live— to ship a bag. Plus, if the purchase doesn’t work out, it’s another $6.95 lost on top of that! So, doing the math, it’s possible to lose up to $26.42 if the bag doesn’t meet expectations. Too rich for my blood!

Would never purchase a handbag with that kind of shipping charge!  Are they crazy? Before I purchase now I always think about the cost to return, not just the label but losing the original shipping charge too.  Has made me scale back considerably.

I thought the same thing.  Way too much to ship a handbag.

It looks like it may be a percentage of the retail price.

I'd only be gasping for breath if I wanted the bag.  Jusr hope someone who really wants that bag is getting it at such a good price that the added shipping still gives them a bargain.

I would never pay that amount of shipping for a handbag. Completely ridiculous.
