A. You are only charged shipping for items that do NOT qualify for free shipping. Here's an example:
- Item A costs $7 to ship UPS ground.
- Item B costs $12 to ship UPS ground.
- If you order item A & B, the cost to ship UPS ground is $19.
- However, we are running a special, and Item B qualifies for free shipping when ordered UPS Ground. You will NOT be charged shipping for item B, however you will be charged $7 to ship Item A.
