Companies make shopping online so simple that we sometimes forget to pay closer attention to the charges. You found a great bargain online. Now what?
Shipping and Handling
First check the shipping and handling charges. They can be disproportionate at times, especially if the item you buy is not very expensive. Check if shipping charges are cumulative.
