    "Can I save $5/pair if I have someone come by and pick the frames up instead of you paying someone to stuff them in a box" is not a real scenario. Whether the charges are baked in are irrelevant if you can't do anything to bring the cost down, and it sounds like lensmanmd's costs went down, not up.

    We just add USD 5 extra for international shipping and send the glasses through Government mode (EMS) but shipping is free within India (our home country).

    After a quick test it seems that when someone votes in the poll the post rises back to the top of the feed. This thread could probably be locked at this point or the poll disabled.
