Shipping charges

One of the things I find really petty and annoying is the tendancy of small
and some large video distributors to charge for shipping. When you pay
upwards of $200 for a video cassette, you are then slapped with a per title
shipping charge of $7 or more. It seems to me that this is a normal cost of
doing business and one the vendor should absorb or build into their overhead.

Has anyone balked at this to a vendor and won? With what vendors have you
been successful? When I speak to vendors from now on I will start to make
the cost of shipping an issue.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks,
David
