Free postage is worth a few seconds to understand.
BigVits do not normally do free postage for 2 reasons....
1) It lacks transparency and does not let a customer see the real cost.
2) It sounds good but usually costs much more to the customer. If a company is offering free postage, they have to add into the cost of their product enough to cover postage for the 1 item. If you then buy, for example, 4 of those items, you will pay 4 lots of postage included in the price although the postage for all 4 often costs the seller no more postage than for 1 item.
Lets look at a real example.......
Jarrow Formulas Vitamin B-5, a competitor sells for £9.85 with "free" shipping. So 4 of these would cost £39.40 in total. The same Jarrow Formulas, Vitamin B-5 at BigVits would cost £6.95 x 4 = £27.80 BUT, BigVits also gives extra discount for 2-3 units or 4+ units. So 4 of these would cost only £25.80 + Shipping of £2.99 =£28.79 SAVING £10.61 or 27% on the competitors "FREE" postage price.
So please be aware of the real cost of "free" shipping. BigVits always try to be totally transparent and give all customers an honest and fair deal.
The basic weight for Royal Mail 1st Class Delivery is currently 750grams and you can sometimes, depending on products, get 5, 6 or even up to 10 items in this single £2.99 charge. Above 750 grams, the RM price increases slightly.
Prices are correct as of May 2014 and all prices relate to UK postage, shipping to EU is more expensive but the same principles apply.
