Thanks for the pointer. I don't know why a lot of places do this. I 
suppose it's just greed. I can't speak for Aquatic Ecosystems, but I can 
speak for my former employer. Whenever we shipped replacement parts to 
customers we got the price from the UPS software and added 50%. When I 
inquired I was told that shipping is a service like anything else and so 
we need to make a profit.
