Not sure that's a 'sting' unless they charged you without telling you. Just did a quick survey for 6x ACC bare shafts + deliveryJust been "stung" - half a dozen arrows and some string wax, a touch under £9 for P&P - that's excessive...
I assume you knew the postage before buying, so your choice to pay the postage - why did you use them......could it be the goods were the cheapest in the UK therefore profit margins were almost non existent.Sorry but I am pretty price aware.
Pretty much every other industry manages far better postage costs than archery. I do a lot of other sport - surfing, MTBing, all sorts and Archery has by FAR the most rip off P&P prices. It's annoying and no I'm not some gullible buyer. In fact I do it as part of running our business.
On a slightly different tangent, although not entirely unrelated, so I'll plead not guilty to going (too far) off topic: I recently saw a letter in a newspaper (they still exist) telling people that they couldn't claim to be "green" if they ever ordered stuff to be "delivered by van".Still a lot cheaper than getting in your car and visiting an archery dealer.
But do you go to the bricks and mortar shop to look and try and then buy online because it's a couple of quid cheaper?Now, my experience of "real" bricks and mortar archery shops on the other hand... very different story and a large part of why I decided to try online.
I looked in the 'Terms & Rules' which is brief and doesn't mention retailer reviews. Looked at the 'User Reviews' and that states ' NO RETAILER REVIEWS - KEEP THEM IN THE DIRECTORY'. I couldn't find the 'Directory'Really shouldn't be naming names here - it's against the rules - however we do have a product review section where you can give retailers a writeup.
Nope. Absolutely not. I run a bricks and mortar, I hate when people do that!! I wish my bricks and mortar was an archery one!! But it isn't.But do you go to the bricks and mortar shop to look and try and then buy online because it's a couple of quid cheaper?
