I don't get it... Are people actually so stupid to respond to these scams that such spamming is worth time invested?!
Replace "stupid" with desperate and/or non-internet savvy. There are huge swaths of the United States and global population in general that have little to no computer literacy. Not out of stupidity but out of lack of access. I've ranted about this topic before, so I'll spare this thread a rehash. :) This kind of scam/spam is particularly despicable in my view because it is usually exploiting the poor, the desperate and/or elderly who haven't had any or enough computer literacy to understand that this is a scam and the ramifications of falling prey to them.
Anyway, sometimes people respond out of stupidity, sometimes greed, but often a huge part of why people get taken in by this stuff is a basic lack of computer educational experience. Worse, often time the spam/scams are set up in a way to get the victim roped into something quasi-illegal so the victim doesn't want to tell authorities to prosecute. Its really easy to dismiss scams like these because they seem so silly, who would fall for it? But the truth is they are nasty, vicious and a blight on humanity. *stepping off of soapbox*
Hope that helps people understand the problem a bit better!
Much of this thread has already covered most of reasons we don't delay shipping, (cash flow, storage, customer service reasons, etc) One thing that I did not see however and want to point out, is how it affects the monthly shipping.
So, to sum up, we are very, very conscious of how shipping costs impact customers decisions to subscribe with us, (especially in comparison with companies that use low or free shipping as a loss leader) and we do our best to balance this with the logistics of direct to customer subscriptions.
