Now that's just weird. Why would it add all the secondary's together? Hm... I would have assumed it would have taken the higest primary then added the other item's secondary's to it. Did you ask admin about it?

Yes indeed, the way shipping works as is follows:

1. We take the highest primary shipping cost in the order
2. We add in the secondary shipping costs of all the other items in the order

So if you have two different items, both marked at $2.00 primary and $0.00 secondary, the total shipping will come out to $2.00 .

It seems like several of the admin are fairly new and maybe they really didn't know, or they misunderstood something. I can't imagine that they would change this. Especially without letting us know in a big way.

Yay! I love the confidence RevolvingDork!

So no "Magic Free Shipping" with the $0.00 Secondary shipping price. And is MaryElizabeths fixable?

Let me go and re-check this. I can be a dork sometimes.
