We have a product that we can save about 50% on shipping by requiring the customer to spend 30 seconds by assembly the product with two small screws. And we will even provide detailed instructions like "3/4 turn after hand tight".
We also plan on throwing in blurb about saving on shipping costs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as a feel good message.
i have purchased a lot of merchandise these days, that never mention minor assembly or "some assembly required is buried on the box in 6 point font.
Since you should never put in a negative impediment to a sale, I don't want to advertise a trivial task pre-sale.
Probably being Paranoid, but has anyone received customer blow back on this issue?
