Even for the set of ten small containers, multi-colors, new today, they ask $5.50 for shipping. These are small plastic containers, lightweight, don't take up much space, so why $5.50?
What am I missing?

QVC's shipping is not based on the size or weight of the package, nor on where it is going. It is part of the entire pricing system.
Even stores/websites with free shippping calculate it into the overall pricing of their merchandise.

here is how i look at it......
the tsv set is $25.48......and it is an eight piece set. this is a larger capacity set also.
is each piece worth $3.19? if it is, i buy it......if it isnt, i dont buy it.
for me, this set is well worth the cost per piece. an excellent price for the quality.

Try boxing that set up and taking it to the post office and sending it. Way more than $5.50.

Just go to your local U.S. Post Office or your local UPS store and see what THEY tell you it will cost to ship even the smallest package or envelope. Shipping isn't cheap.
Can't expect to do any better than what the average shipping price is out there, and I do think QVC's shipping can be regarded as a bargain.
With L&L storage containers, the boxes they come in can be large, and the shippers set rates not only on weight, but on size of boxes.
Boxes take up space in their airplanes and trucks, and still require the same manpower and gasoline (price of which is going up dramatically lately) to load and deliver them, no matter how lightweight they might be. The boxes themselves cost money, too.
