Illusion of pricing

I'm in Australia. Almost bought a guitar effects pedal (an octave pedal) thru Pedal was about thirty bucks -- but turns out that international shipping and handling was **also** about thirty bucks. Pah! Not gonna pay as much for shipping as for the pedal.

Funny thing, though: If the pedal had been fifty bucks, I probably would've still thought that was a fair price for the pedal. And if the shipping had been ten bucks, I would've thought that reasonable.

So, still sixty bucks, total. And yet one transaction gets rejected, while another one would be approved.

It's all how you slice it.
