My experience with Newark is extensive, both is the comercial and the private sector. I have not had these kinds of problems. Perhaps it is just a matter of a diferent form of shipping to save money.

Don't you look at the final total before submitting payment?

No question, Newark is expensive, both shipping and the prices of the parts. I use them only if I can't find a part elsewhere.
On the other hand, I never had problems with their service. So my recommendation is to use Newark sparingly.

YES I DID ! at the time it does not show you the total it just tells you the item price and totals that out! and you have an option were to calculate shipping. tells you 5.56 Then you get the invoice via email to you with Vaseline telling you how much the bent you over for 11.12

I called and asked for a manager and he told me that its because the warehouse sent out items in two different packages and they charged me 2 shipment charges

Ive order stuff on the internet and never experience anything like this ! so i Google them and found out of their little dirty schemes of doing business. also when you order such as heatsink compound they ship that in another box so you get charge for 2 shipments even though its not a hazardous item (point blank screw them) read around you come to you own decision
I have and no more business for them from me

I've dealt with Newark. They don't tell you when your parts are being shipped from different locations. They should.
It shoudln't be your responsibily to pay for two shipments just because they had to ship from two locations.
They need to get their act together.

I've had this experience with them as well, and apparently this is what the OP experienced also. I find them expensive, and in most instances they are rarely the only source of a part I am looking for, so I avoid them when possible.

I agree the both of the items came out of the same location, thats why i was mad and they dont even explain the shipment charge and you call one of their customer service and the tell you to call ups for an explanation I finally called the manager at (newark)and he explain everything to me which adds up to a money scheme you think for one second the don't know they are charging you 2 shipments knowing they have the same order number.

sorry for the rant you guy's just given you guys a heads up ! thanks for all your helpful information Ive gotten here specially to Perry Babin
