Yes, you have to watch the 3rd party vendors. I just ordered an item from Amazon. On the web page there were 2 options: 1 for $5 or 2 for $6.50. Choosing option 2 as the better price I found when I went to checkout that there was a $70 shipping charge. So, cancel that, go back and pick option 1, set a quantity of 4. This time check out shows $20 for 4 item's and free shipping with my prime membership.

Apparently the option 2 vendor was hoping I'd do a 1-click purchase and not notice the high price. The very reason I never do a 1-click purchase. I want to see what the total charges are and who's getting them before I agree. I'll expend the extra clicks, they're cheap.

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
