How Do They Make A Profit?
February 13, 2018 8:25am CST
I went shopping last week at Walmart and they didn't have the Lays potato chips individual servings bag that I wanted. I decided to order it from their website. To get free shipping I had to order more than $35. I have a few items for my kitchen that I wanted and I needed filters for the air conditioning system. The filters arrived first alone. Then the Germack nut mix arrived, alone. Then the potato chips arrived alone in a box. The strainer came in a mailing bag, alone. I still have two more things to come. I can't imagine how it is profitable to end all these items to me separately.

On line stores have different people supplying for them and on receiving the order the agency inturn palce the orders to these suppliers and then these suppliers ship your product on behalf of the agency whom you have paid dear @BelleStarr! By doing so agency doesn't have any head ache of shipping with them! Thanks!
@BelleStarr It would cost more to ask to send them the item, to group the items and then send the package to you. I also receive the items from Amazon in several shipping, even if I only ordered movies on DVDs. Some come directly from the UK, others from Italy and others from France. It is less expensive to send them directly to me from their different plants.

That seems strange? Did the items cost more than the price one would pay in the store? If so that might be how they are making money. Did you put them all on the same credit card or did you order them at separate times? If you did, that might be the reason?
