It is important to note there is NO FREE shipping. It actually costs someone an average of $45. In order to be able to offer it on any order, that order has to be large enough so that the company makes its money on quantities. Many companies escalate the cost of the item to accommodate a low shipping cost. If you drop the price of the items so low where your margin is minimal and offer free shipping, why even be in business as you will go broke in short order? You have to always calculate your landed cost of any item. Obviously the more you order the less your landed cost per item will be. That is why I recommend friends to organize a group buy.
