Offering free shipping is another great end run around the MAP.
And when you are only making 10% markup ..like the OP has said ..presumably when you offer free shipping you'll make up your losses ( because you have to deduct the cost of your site, the domain, the hosting, your salary ..and the ones who stiff you ..see the OP's other many threads ..etc etc etc ) on the volume ?
If you are only making 10% and your name isn't walmart ..or the equivalent ..and you are worrying about "fair" and "elegant solutions" then it is a disaster waiting to happen..
Or death by a thousand cuts ..
