Regarding high shipping charges, it's no secret that companies selling via infomercials and eBay and via internet make money on shipping charges. In volume, a box costs maybe 20 cents, postage 2-3 bucks, a first-class postage for very small items, yet they charge 6-9 bucks S&H.
My shopping cart system is very simple and the rate of abandonment is very low, but my products on that web site have very low demand - wrong business or bad promotion.
But that confirms webworld's points: KISS.
People have to be very cautious when dealing with "trial offers" over the phone that come from attractive but hidding deceptive business practice of companies such as ORTHOWHITE or TRAVEL CHOICE, and their numerous reincarnation.
They send you a worthless trial package together with a default "program" package and you must return the program package on time, or they charge you big bucks on your credit card.
Of course you have too send the package back at your expense of time and shipping cost. Are you willing to do that? The value of their trial package is amybe a dollar, but it will cost you the trial package (about $5 S&H) plus the return freight.
My advice to you is don't touch ORTHOWHITE & TRAVEL CHOICE with a nine-foot stick. They make money on their trial shipment, and huge profit if you missed the dead line to cancel their default program, which is worthless and misleading to start with.
Yes unless you deal with reputable companies such as Amazon - 100% satisfaction from me even when I don't read the books - stay away from teaser offers with a phone marketeer behind them.
