Honest pricing
« on: Monday 27 November 17 08:50 GMT (UK) »
I am just purchasing an Ancestry DNA test. Having "read around" the subject, I was aware that the postage was 20.00.

However, I was "a little surprised" at the sequence on the website. It started with a price of 49, and I then entered my shipping address. I was then asked for my payment card details, which were verified with my bank.

THEN AND ONLY THEN was the postage charge of 20 added to the total.

I don't recall EVER seeing a site that only showed the postage charge this late in the process.

It is (at best) sharp practice.
