    dont know if this is allowed and where at all to post this so i firugred id put it here and if wrong maybe someone can move it.

    Im going to be buying from OCuk in the next few days for 4/5 items, e.g. monitor, speaker, cpu and VGA coolers and blank CD's, but im really put off by the price of the shipping and cant work out why it is so much.

    on there own these items have i tihnk £8.95 delivery so i figured together it would be £20 tops as its not too much harder to bring more items, yet its not and its like the full price of each item to be deliverd to me is just added together and the fact that its all coming to the same address doesn't matter.

    is this liekly to be for real, or a screw up somewhere along the line?

    when i bought all the parts for my computer (in sig) that was all at one go and was i think £20 so why is this which is less items so much more?

    Yeah I know, shipping is a pain. I'd love to get loads of little things but I can't because the shipping just isn't worth it. Instead I'm having to wait until I have a larger order.

    Weight and size of packages increase the cost of a delivery.

    Ditto.

    OcUK would be alot more popular if they offered cheaper shipping and so on!

    Shop talk IS permitted and always has been. This is what isn't, from the FAQ :
    addy, list your items in this thread and I'll look into it. There may be a weight error in one of the items.

    Spie shop talk isn't allowed on the forums, so this thread will probably get locked.









    ;)

    I believe its called understanding your core customer ;)

    To sell to the geek you must first understand the geek.....wax on, wax off....

    ...Plus correct me if i'm wrong but OcUK isn't a publicly floated company, i thought Mr Spie is the Lord of OcUKville.

    Shareholders just bitch and whine :p
