You really don't think much of your customers do you. coarse you will never know how many sales you miss by having customers go through that just to find a price. Wake Up..

Again, I don't "buy" that. You may have your reasons, but trust me when I tell you that other retailers will have your customers! Another thing you might want to consider is that online shopping is not the cutting edge of technology anymore, and there are many online distributing companies that have modeled their businesses after https://amazon.com, and they DON'T play the "let's-hide-the-price-so-our-customers-have-to-add-items-to-their-shopping cart-to-find-out-the-price" game. You're losing a LOOOOOT of business!

When I don't see the price, I just close the window! Bye-bye Amazon.

If everyone followed Amazon's lead, it wouldn't make much difference. However if only Amazon is playing "hide the price", it looks suspicious and it is bad marketing. Bob

I thought your explanation was helpful. I love Amazon. I'm sure you will get it worked out. If I want the product, I can do a couple of clicks.

Personally, I find it very annoying, and I refuse to buy any item whose price is hidden this way.

It does NOT matter what the reason for hidden pricing, or whether Amazon has some secret scheme to price differently depending on who you are. None of that matters. All that matters is that hidden prices are a total waste of my time and effort. So I will not waste my time. I NEVER, absolutely NEVER buy items with hidden prices or mail in rebates. Both are a waste of my time and effort. I treat both as scams. On items of serious expense I spend my time and effort researching the product, the brand, the seller, et cetera. I will not waste more time playing with scams. I do not want the BEST price; I want a good price from a source that I can trust.
