Shipping reduction on several books in one package Reply

    I notice there is no shipping reduction when I order several books in one package and I do not understand why. The shipping fees are what prevents people from buying extra books for their friends as gifts. The postage on one book to me is always $5, even though I pay $8. That's a $3 profit on one book. If I order 2 or 3 I am guessing the postage would be no more than $7, but I would still need to pay $16-$24 for shipping fees. This does not make sense to me. Why can I not pay a resonable approximation of what it actually costs to mail me the books instead of a fee that can get up to 10X actual costs? I wrote a family history where I originally planned to send copies to 25 family members but I cancelled my plans when I realized shipping costs were going to be hundreds of dollars! I appreciate your web site and feel that generally your prices are the best but in this one small area, things are not right and make no sense in relation to actual mailing costs. I appreciate you considering this problem.

    I agree with you 100%. There needs to be a bit of a discount on multiple books.

    It's because they give out so many free book credits. If they didn't build a little bit of money into the shipping costs, they would be losing money not only on the shipping but also on the book itself.

    if you need some free book credits, i have some you could have, just let me know. With the books free the shipping is worth it.

    and shipping cost more then just the 'cost' to ship. You have people that have to handle the items and package them. I've yet to see a company pack photo books so well! I love their packaging. I just wish I could find other uses for it!
    And the cost of the packaging is built into that price too.

    You can do calculation yourself.

    If you got 10 free credits of 8x8 photo books, total shipping fees PLUS $0.00 prices, $79.90 only.

    If you order from Shxxxxxxy, for 10 8x8 photo books, it will be over $300.00

    That is all what I want to say.

    I should say "Thanks" to them. Their financial reports attract me to join this photo gifts/photobook market to compete with them. Without those detailed financial details, there will be no ArtsCow at all.

    I wanted to order 35 copies of my latest photobook (23 pages), which was about $390, but the shipping almost doubles the cost (about $315?) making each book over $20. Do you have any advice for me on shipping or finding photobook credits? Thanks,
