scares me enough to stay away from them.
Kind of a bummer, but a learning experience. It would be nice if they made it clearer in the process of ordering, but ultimately it was my fault for not reading the terms of the site.
Next time I'll read the shipping info more carefully (or at all), and hopefully everyone who reads this will benefit from my carelessness.

Yep, except for when they don't. They have an awful inventory system that works like this:
- If you have 1 of the item, put item online
- Sell 2
- Remove item when the system indicates someone ordered one too many
- Tell 2nd customer "oops, we don't have what you ordered"
This is a well-known problem, even by morebeer's own admission in their reply to a complaint email I sent.
Also, even with the unexpected shipping charge, the plates are cheaper at Cynmar
$10.25/10 at cynmar versus $3.50/ea
at morebeer (currently out of stock).
$10.25 + 20.56 = $30.81 / 10 = 3.08 ea
