Random fashion thoughts - Part II (A New Hope) - Page 500

You're mad because people won't ship express at their expense all the way to Australia? Be thankful that they even offer free standard, they're shipping clothes to you from the literal other side of the world.
I used to get mad about paying anywhere up to $60 for shipping, but I think it helps you really consider if what you're buying is worth it.

Yeah it's crazy to expect free expedited shipping across the globe.

well MrPorter can do free EXPRESS shipping for over 200GBP, SSENSE 500AUD etc etc. otherwise it is 20GBP for still express ship, some sites they charge like 40USD for standard international, i just think if you pay like $1000 for a jacket or something at least do the shipping free..i am not talking about grailed i am talking about WEBSTORES surely it wouldn't break their bank to offer free express with a minimum shopping amount

Someone's got to pay for that shipping, why should the retailer take on the cost?

To make the sale.

I swear that no thread is safe from people bitching about their currency exchange rate. The sales thread could only contain them for so long.

I'm going to start demanding the local brick and mortar pays for my bus fare to and from there, it's only fair they pay for shipping as well.

Invoicing the store makes the most sense here, y'all. In addition to bus fare, charge them by the hour for the time it took you to get to the brick and mortar and/or time spent looking through their inventory. Online? Add "click" fees. Time is money.

They couldn't afford my rates.

Thats only for purchases over $30, you got to leave some room for profit.

I think that we (the collective we) have fostered the unrealistically high standards of online customers.  70% off sales?  Is there going to be a coupon on top of that?  Shipping and returns should of course be free.  I bagged something at 80% off, but it's been 48 hours, and I have not had a shipping confirmation? That's terrible customer service.  

 

The problem is that online, every site looks more or less the same, and it's difficult for a consumer to distinguish between outfits who are backed by incredibly deep pockets who can take sustained losses for years, while gobbling up market share, and working behind the scenes in increase efficiency in ways that are not options for small businesses.  And ultimately, it's a losing game for small businesses.  After all, if you play poker with someone with 1MM times your resources, you are, probably sooner rather than later, going to lose, unless you figure out a way to become a behemoth as well.

 

I don't blame individual customers for their self interested behavior, but I do find it incredulous that members of this forum, who have a better education about these things than the general public, would not at least recognize that their own patterns of behavior have been conditioned in a way that benefits large corporate outfits most, and in the long term, could possibly be to their own detriment.
