Default If you buy a bulk in newegg, how does shipping works?

Do they put everything in one big box? and charge you less?

Or do they still put it in a big box, and charge you for every individual item?

Or, do they send them in parts?

Thanks.

Not always.

They have shipping centers in California, New Jersey, and Tennessee. I had an order where I received a box from every shipping center.

From my experience, most of the components come from California and the cases, peripherals, and software come from Memphis and New Jersey.

they don't compile it, but what they will do is just judge it by weight and relative size. and go on like moddersmart.com they sell tx-2 for cheap and have like 3 dollar shipping.

Shipping isn't usually flat per item when you've got a big box coming. That tube of paste will cost like 20 cents to ship if you make a bulk order.

vernong just said the opposite.

"They still charge individually, but its in one big box"

So it just matters in luck? whether they like you or not?

Well when I got my stuff, I just ordered 3 things, the DVD-RW, Mobo and PSU because Tech-Forums members gave me everything else, whereas the rest of you ordered everything else, so I guess it depends on what you order
