    Do online retailers think we're stupid? The cost of delivery is clearly incorporated into the cost of the item.

    It doesn't have to be.

    The cost could be foregone, if the total revenue from sales made it worthwhile.

    It depends where you buy from; besides if you think the item is cheap, and you gain free delivery who cares if the cost is hidden; it's still the same price.

    I suppose if you're buying something online then for the retailer, although there are extra costs for delivery, they don't need to spend as much money running a nice looking store on the high street with high rent and lots of staff etc.
