Indicative shipping

Shipping fees often vary quite a lot between retailers.

Some retailers opt for simplicity by offering free shipping for all products or a fixed amount (for example $5.99). In these cases, it’s straightforward for PriceMe to display the exact shipping fee next to the price. Other retailers, however, employ more complex calculation methods where the shipping is based on weight or location or some combination of the two. In these cases, it’s more difficult to estimate and display shipping. We, therefore, decided to at least display the indicative shipping fee where possible instead of just omitting  shipping, since consumers quickly are able to determine which shipping fee that applies.
