I received the total for my recent purchase and I have to say that the "shipping” fee is excessive. I have been purchasing glass for years and shop from many on line sources, but I have always been informed of shipping totals prior to completing and placing orders. I was reluctant to do so this time, but after having read the shipping requirements I thought my order met said requirements and therefore shipping cost would be minimal. When shipping cost are near 50% of the total purchase that is unjustified. I ship all the time and know the cost of shipping items of varying weight and size and this small package weighing 18.90 lbs. ships for about $12.00. You can expect that I will not do any further business with this company and I will inform others in the trade of their practice of deceiving customers by hiding the cost of shipping as a means of inflating overall cost.
