When I was notified, and to my dismay, the shipping charge for my $6 purchase is $64.66!!! I was told that they will ship in 13"x7"x7" box and weigh 0.19lbs. I am charged for whichever is greater (which is I can understand) but why do they put in such a big box to begin with?!
When asked about repackaging in smaller box and sending, I was told it will be the same price!!! When I asked why, I was told and his exact words are "Any processing done afterward is not considered in the billing process". I was shocked...Unbelievable!
And then he also said "You can repackage the items in the order, but you will need to upgrade to our Advantage membership in order to do so. The min. fee is $15 per month and min. 3 months commitment"!!!
Apparently, there are 2 nail polish in there that I did not order, that Exclusive Wedding said they did not place into the box, and Bongo said are in the box! I am not sure who is right or wrong but they left me confused and frustrated. At this point, I just want my wedding favors because I paid for and needed.
Advice to all, please make sure you check with your seller the exact dimension and weight prior to paying and shipping. Do not let them trick you into paying for outrageous shipping charges that you do not deserve.
Thanks for reading.
