Do you remember the old days when you had to carry around your often bulky music gear? The latest generation portable speakers connect over the air using Bluetooth technology to your smart phone and other devices. It’s bound to be noisy on the beach this Christmas! The best selling speakers are Logitech’s Ultimate Ears UE Boom 2 and UE MegaBoom. These speakers aren’t cheap ($260-$350), so think twice before making a purchase.
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.
Mouse over on the shipping trucks with a blue information ‘i’, and you’ll see the indicative shipping for the product.
