I have never seen a "just pay shipping" offer for anything that was actually a good deal. I think that's code for "never buy this".

Dude, if you have to pay $8 to acquire these shoes, just say they are $8. What does it matter what the specific line item in the invoice that the $8 goes to? What if the shoes were $8 and it was free shipping? What if the shoes were free and shipping was free but you had to pay an $8 processing fee?

It's $8

Looked like they're worth $8 ( first time parent buying first pair of shoes :p, cheaper than the moccasins at Nordstrom's)

They could be. I'm just thinking that a good bit of the down votes are because the post is for free shoes, when they are $8 (to acquire) shoes. In your defense, you did say that you have to pay shipping.

I think it's best practice to just put the total price, not including tax, as the price. If the shipping fee cannot be avoided, I would just add it to the price and use that total price as the price in the title.

Also, I'm not going to lie, I thought this post had something to do with baby snakes. And I clicked on it trying to figure out what was up with a post for poisonous snakes for sale, lol.

Doubtful...but even so, an $8 item selling for $8 makes it just "the price" not a "hot deal".
