I ordered via my credit card and selected standard UPS shipping.
The item arrived, in a 12in x 12in x 1 in box.
Apparently it had been shipped EXPRESS USPS.
I opened the box to discover A SINGLE BNC CONNNECTOR. The invoice inside stated $12.86 and on my credit card I was billed $38, $24 for SHIPPING!!!!!!
I called to see what the problem was and I was informed that the QTY. listed in the description is the quantity THEY BUY THEM IN....??!?!?!? What?
I also asked about why I was charged $24 to ship a SINGLE, less then an oz, connector, and they said it was shipped USPS EXPRESS which costs $24. The sales person on the phone was less then polite and rudely said that I selected USPS express...which Indeed I did NOT, on MY screen. Perhaps their system has a bug and says otherwise but this was not an item I needed rushed, but enough benefit of the doubt.
Their Misleading descriptions, and apparently RIDICULOUS Pricing makes them a NO GO EVER AGAIN. If paying $12 for a single connector, IT BETTER BE MADE IN THE USA! But no...China, and the lack of quality shows.
Do yourself a favor, PAY LESS, and get LESS hassle elsewhere.
