    Seeing that photo is amusing as on TJC right now, that motormouth Amit just called Chloe Marshall, Caroline Lyndsay. (both are in the photo)

    Also, on my mind as it happens. TJC have an on screen graphic saying there are ''4 more (price) plunges to go'' it says the item is currently 342.99

    they have sold 13. 13!!!!

    why buy without knowing what the price will end up as?

    Sorry... had to get that off my chest.

    I'm not remotely interested in Jewellery but I have seen bits of TJC of late with those awful gobby, showoff buyers and it too seems like Bid.

    Maybe i'm totally out of sync and behind the times, perhaps the 'Bid' style is the way Selly Telly is going?

    It is definitely heading that way. I am certain they (qvc, IW, etc) are making profit on the p&p these days.

    That's a good point.

    We all (me included) often comment that Ideal World's P+P charges are reasonable in comparison to QVC's (and they are) but the fact of the matter is that both companies charges are scandalous in comparison top companies like Argos and Curry's. Also the delivery services are not even that quick, sometimes downright slow. We are conditioned to think a couple of days is brilliant but......

    In January we ordered an iPad, Blender, Kettle, Toaster and a few small Kitchen Utensils from Curry's on a Monday and it was all delivered the next day (actually within less than 24 hours) for 3.95

    And just before Christmas we bought a Table, Lamp, Keyboard & Mouse and a pair of Headphones from Argos which were all delivered for 3.95 the very same day we ordered them online, in fact depending on what you spend it can be free

    I don't think IW are making a profit on p&p, I've had several items of clothing sent out free, and several tops sent out in one order for 1, the Tefal Optigril+ I ordered going by the weight would've cost considerably more than 5.99, I totally agree with you though that QVCs profit greatly from their p&p charges. Years ago, I had to get out the habit that when I ordered clothes from IW, a different colour and size wasn't going to cost me another set of postage. Got a leaflet with my order saying the starting 13th of April, it's free p&p from then all over the weekend.

    But sadly for every reasonable P+P charge Ideal World have the vast majority of their items are delivered pretty slowly by today's standards, and very expensively.

    Take the POTD. 2 x 200ml bottles of Zhuzh! for 4.99 P+P which is (very slightly) more expensive than Q tend to charge for similar sized items. But perhaps worst of all it's 25% of the actual cost of the goods (19.99). I find it hard to believe they don't make a significant profit from such a high charge

    It's really very, very expensive compared to the 'real' world but in fairness i'd say many of the on air items can have reasonable carriage costs compared to QVC (which is no real barometer at all)

    I know were you're coming from, QVCs p&p is all over the place when two bags of little Richards compost is 5.99 the same as an ultra light Kipling bag. The difference is if you ordered three lots of IW pick of the day it would cost you one lot of p&p of 4.99, if it was QVC the p&p would be 10 speaks volumes how much profit QVC would've made out of that little transaction hey.
