I tried, guys – I really did. I wanted to buy from you. I always want to buy from you, or someone – anyone – who specializes in photography.
Don’t get me wrong: I love the convenience of Amazon, but when it comes to quality listings and specialized knowledge I like to stick with the specialists. Like you.
Unfortunately, you don’t like me. I live in another country, as far as you’re concerned. Like our brothers & sisters in Puerto Rico or Hawaii, you add the “not us” tax. Contiguous 48 states? Free shipping! Alaska? Twenty bucks minimum, give or take. It’s probably worse in Hawaii.
I just wanted a monopod – figured I’d grab one & reward The Online Photographer at the same time. Add on a head & a tabletop tripod and you’ve got my order. And your prices: on par with everything Amazon offered, even a tad cheaper.
But with shipping? 12% more expensive.
And that’s why I order from Amazon every other month, but from you guys only once every other year. It adds up, guys.
It adds up.
