can you charge someone without showing shipping costs?
Posted on 2014-04-18
I have a client who is trying to get me to build an ecommerce site without showing the shipping charges. This breaks online ethic standards in my book, but I would like to know if it is even legal to do. Is this common (i have never seen it)
They basically want to take the charge, give them the chance to choose their shipping option, but not reveal the cost.
Their reason is because they don't know the shipping cost until they put the package together. The store I have built from them is integrated with all shipping services so I can calculate these costs up front, but they prefer not to.
Basically, I need some fuel to back to them with to say, "see, this is why you can't do that" Any thoughts? Or am I the one who is off here.
