Buying online - shipping prices.
Living remotely I rely more and more upon online purchasing. And yet the shipping is often not free especially for small items.
I wish there was a conglomerate where I could ship to a commercial site and pick up locally to save money.
I love the brick and mortar sites that allow me to shop online and ship to their store but I really wish there was a better method or more options for saving on the expensive cost of shipping.
I know eBay and Amazon offer these services but what about the rest of merchants - shouldn't they have an alternative?
What are your thoughts and experiences?
I know Walmart does it and Sears and I am sure more stores do---just contact online or put an item in the basket which you can delete later---but I have done this to find out if picking up at the store would be an option. Therefore, no fee for customer pick-up.
