    Hi everyone

    sometimes when you want to buy something from Amazon.com , usually another item come beside it as (Frequently Bought Together).
    I asked Amazon.com if it is usually shipped together , they said that is is according to the items if thery are available at the same store.

    What is from your experience ? Are these items usually shipped together
    Actually I would like to buy a cover with its stylus (iFrogz summit case) , and shipping together matters me very much as it will be costly if shipped individually.

    (Actually I am outside US , but I have US address managed by a company which they are forewarding the packages for me. If they send it separatly , that company will send it separatly and it will charge me as separate shipments.)


    Thank you

    I'm on my phone, so I can't see your location. If you're in the US though, they'll ship from whatever warehouse is available. I've rarely had an individual shipment, for anything. Once they even sent two of the same item separately.

    You don't have to pay more when this happens though; unless you're ordering through an international courier.

    Amazon ships as many items together as possible. This usually ends up in a few shipments per order. For example, I ordered coffee and boxing gloves, they came together. This is the first time I've ever seen grocery shipped with anything else. Another time I ordered a flash drive, coffee, carpet cleaner, and a DVD, I got 4 shipments.

    It is a crap shoot really.

    Seems like Amazon used to have two options for multiple items -- one, I want my items faster so ship them as they become available, & two, I want my items shipped together. Do they not have that any more?

    Actually yes. :eek: I don't check it as I believe it would delay the 2-day shipping time for me that I get free being a Prime member. If I weren't a Prime member I would probably check it.
