Today I stumbled upon an ecommerce site called Tackle Direct, an online retailer of all kind of fishing gear. Sadly, this site is no catch (see what I did there?)

I got a tip about a very confusing ecommerce shipping policy, so of course I had to investigate. When I looked into Great American Spice Company‘s site, I have to admit, I was pretty puzzled myself! Arriving on the site, I saw some text at the top of the page: “$5.99 flat rate shipping free […]

We all browse online sometimes for things we can’t afford, which is why I ended up on the Missoni ecommerce site today.
