I was considering an order, but then I saw a $5 handling fee (with shipping, or with pick up, didn't matter which).



Just wondering if anyone else is getting this? I tried checking out as a guest, so I don't know if that makes a difference.


Oh and there is limited stock left on Kingdom Scorponok at $14 if you are interested.

I think they charge a $5 handling fee on orders under a certain dollar threshold (like $30 maybe?) just to discourage people from placing lots of tiny orders.

I went and looked it up:


https://www.walmart.ca/en/free-shipping-options


free home shipping on orders totaling $35 or more (before taxes and other costs). Shipping & Handling for home delivery is $5.97 otherwise.


However, on orders under $25, regardless of whether it's ship-to-store (which is free in and of itself regardless of price) or home delivery (which would incur the $5.97 S&H charge at that point, but doesn't count towards the $25 threshold), they charge an additional $5 "order handling fee". This means that if you place an order for less than $25 for home shipment you pay $10.97 in fees between the handling fee and the shipping cost.

It (obviously) doesn't say why, but it seems likely to be to discourage people from placing tiny orders for store pickup and instead either ordering more items or waiting and combining their orders into larger values where it's worth the time and effort of the shipping employees to pack it up and send it out to a store.


I remember because I once ordered some replacement earbuds for ones that I had gotten at a Walmart location but weren't sold in stores anymore. They were still available on the website, but at a price of somewhere between $8 and $9 a pair I chose to order 3 sets instead of just 1 or 2 so I wasn't paying the fee and would have extra backups

Just order multiples of the item you want or add on some other random items until you hit the minimum free shipping threshold and then the next time you go to Walmart in person, bring that extra stuff with you along with the invoice and return it.

Walmart cancelled my Wheeljacks I ordered during the start of the sale. Everything else shipped.

^^ Which one, Netflix Wheeljack? If so, I have an extra one. Retail price+shipping if you want it.

Re: Walmart.ca Transformers Sightings and discussion

I ordered a set of the $14 clearance Kingdom WJ for customs fodder. Thanks for the offer, but I'll pass.
