So they are actively trying to hide it now?In the past they showed it all to you, but this changed quite some time ago
Those items aren't shipped and sold by Amazon tho...So I'm sorry but as I originally thought the claim is patently false. Sure there would be some outliers that would come close,but I very much doubt it would ever actually be cheaper.
I will admit I often only buy larger items on Amazon and in those cases the shipping is cheaper.
Stupid little niknaks I wouldn't buy from Amazon and often not even from Banggood. I often just use eBay.
Yeah ok sure, the fact is, I know exactly what I pay when I buy from Amazon.It's the SARS/Customs handling and shipping fee and likely also paid by Amazon which is why they charge you the deposit.
In fact I don't think the couriers try to f@#k around with Amazon orders because they know they have their sh#t covered.
I've even had issues once when Amazon was still largely using Aramex.
When I complained to Aramex, they couldn't care less.
One call to Amazon later and Aramex managers are calling to make sure I'm happy, etc.
Aramex is always slapping some or other fees onto things, probably why Buffalo (aka Aramex) decided to hide the invoice.
