In reply to Dan B
The subject thrust here is .."..costs drive away E-shoppers". This may be true to some degree,
but S&H costs have been around for years - witness catalog sales. The number one reason people buy anything on-line is for the convenience. If it were a 'cost' issue everyone would buy at Wal-Mart. However, Wal-Mart is not the only success on the block.
One other comment found in USA today quotes Jupiter Media Metrix as saying that on-line retailing in the next five years will increase astronomically. Is S&H driving away that volume?
