Postage Costs


When people share a deal do you prefer to see postage costs within displayed price?

Just wondering if its on a normal site I don't but if its an amazon deal and postage is per item I always do interested to see what other people think x

Not within the displayed price. No.

1. I want to see what the discount is relative to the actual RRP / Normal Price. That's calculated automatically by Latest Deals (including the delivery price would mess that up)

2. Very often if I buy two or more, or add other items, delivery will in fact be free, because I’ve reached the threshold for free delivery

3. There are often several delivery options at different prices – standard delivery to home, next day delivery to home, delivery to local convenience store etc,

4. With Amazon it gets confusing fast, for Prime Members delivery is usually ‘free’, and for Non-Prime members for products fulfilled by Amazon delivery is usually free for orders over £20, or orders over £10 for books.

5. With hundreds of people posting deals, keeping prices accurate (i.e. including delivery) would be impossible

Overall, I think the best way is to add delivery options and prices in the deal description, if you have time! It’s helpful to know what they are for sure.
