Shipping RIP-off.

I understand that running an online business can be an extreme sport and I totally respect that.

I am fan of shopping online. Most of the time, I would shop, shop, shop, shop till my cart is full then I check out…. I know you feel me, my bank accounts balance….(haha) Other times, I just want to ship something that I’m in need of. Yesterday, I finally got the shoe I have been looking for in the exact same color. And without further ado, I went ahead to purchase plus I added a few items that I have been saving on my cart. It was all with great pleasure until I clicked on shipping method button and they slapped me with a figure that was higher than the buying price of my items. Fam, I was STUNNED!!!!

What I will not entertain though is the total rip off in some of these shipping agencies. You’re not going to charge me 15,499ksh for shipping 3 items. I mean what do you think I do for a living? Or you think I stand outside and money rains on me like Maana.

I may not be your target market for your business but 150USD is not going to work. If you’re going to charge me that much, could you kindly explain to me or give me the breakdown? ’cause I sure don’t know what goes on behind the scenes.

What has been your online shopping and shipping experience?

ON: Enough with today’s ranting. I trust you have a great day. Let me go home and prepare myself for tomorrow to increase my net worth and start affording 150USD for shipping items worth 77.99USD.

    Online shopping is the death of traditional retail shopping πŸ› . For me I have had a great experience with Amazon and now I’m a proud prime member. You will have to incur additional costs when shipping to Kenya πŸ‡°πŸ‡ͺ but it’s worth it.
