    $28.45 for a pound of Kenya AA???

    Funny how you can advertise FREE SHIPPING
    on your site when it's built into the price of the coffee.

    It's not FREE if the customer is paying for it....

    US$65/kg is pretty much the gourmet of gourmet pricing I woulnt hesitate to say. But, I have always said, you let the market say what it will pay... if youcan sell for this price, and people will buy heck why not! I am packing my stuff for a move Stateside as I type with one finger

    Is this going the same way as the "free wife" thread?

    No, but seriously back to topic, it seems a bit crafty to say "free shipping", when their price per pound is ten dollars above everyone else's.

    I've no advertising or marketing background whatsoever, so this is only from a consumer's point of view...

    Free Shipping Concerns

    caffe biscotto, we appreciate your concerns regarding the shipping. But from a seller's point of view, it is much easier to account for the shipping in the price rather than setup shipping tables for each and every item for each and every zip code. To complicate matters, some of our suppliers use Fedex while others use UPS or USPS. We advertise free shipping so that customers don't think there will be another $8 on top of the price they see listed. We want it clear that the price they see is the price they will pay with no other charges.

    BUT, you bring up a fair and valid point. Maybe we should say something like,"Shipping included in price" so as not to appear 'crafty' as you say. I'm not sure how to do so just yet though. Anyone have any ideas?

    Also, are the overall prices fair or way too high? What could we do differently to make you want to purchase from us? Any ideas or feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Price for Kenya AA

    I wouldn't pay more than $18 for a pound of Kenya AA including the shipping. Also I saw on one sight if you order is more than $39 they pay the shipping.

    Hello,

    So.... it looks like a person who's ordering a couple pounds of coffee has to pay a huge shipping fee because the shipping cost is figured into the overall cost of ordering each pound of coffee. That's a huge turn-off to say the least!

    I'd much rather see a reasonable price for the actual coffee listed on the web site, and then have a realistic cost of shipping calculated at the end. How hard is it to create a shipping table and/or calculate shipping costs based on the total order or by the actual weight?

    The Essential Wonders web site offers free shipping, and they didn't inflate their prices so outrageously

    You may want to rethink your strategy.
