Right... the store pays the shipping and passes the cost right on to
the customer.  :D

Naturally, the retailer must pass *everything* on to the customer if they wish
to stay in business.  That said, the store pays for wholesale shipping of large
lots, which is far cheaper than retail shipping of small lots to residential
addresses.  PV panels are large, heavy, and must often be custom repackaged for
shipping if sold in small lots.  All that costs money.

   Yes, but at a rate that is much lower than having a single item
shipped to your home.  They get tractor trailer loads of product
delievered on a regular basis.  You should see their back room, right
after they unload a trailer.

   BTW, that 45 watt panel went on sale today for 169.99 Item number
90599, limit one, with coupon.  That's $0 off their regular price.
