Well I have a monitor stand for my surround and I looked at your guys stands and I saw your shipping prices and I laughed since they were so ludicrously high and the shipping on mine was free.
anyway I need possibly a one stand monitor that can mount on the desk that can go high enough to go over the three monitors.

The shipping cost of the WSGF stands are not that high because WSGF is getting a huge profit from it, if you don't ship at least a few packages per Week you won't get business prices from shipping companies. Just try sending a 20kg package this huge as a private person.

As four your needs, i'm not sure if such things exist. Your cheapest might be getting a Vesa mount and create a stand on your own. That would also fit perfectly for your height.

P.S
:welcome

P.P.S not sure how to read your name.

I don't know what planet you live on but 40$ is absolutely atrocious, I wouldn't pay 40$ for any item even if they had exactly what I needed.

You can take or our product offerings, at your convenience. The S/H charges cover both the actual shipping charges (based on a national average), the handling fees of tape/labels/etc, and the PayPal fees.

The WSGF is not a massive for-profit outfit like Amazon or Paypal. No one here works full time, myself included (the Owner/Founder). All of the staff are volunteers. We all have day jobs (myself included), and do this as a hobby and to serve the community. You'll excuse us if we try to maintain some level of profit now to pay the bills, while paying back years of running the site out of my own pocket.

In our best months of business in two years (Jul-Sep of this year), we've sold 10 stands a month. You'll forgive me if I don't give away large amounts of my profit margin - ON A PRODUCT I DESIGNED - to give you free shipping. Amazon probably processes this many orders each millisecond. And, you pay $79/year for their Amazon Prime service (I'm a member myself).

Why don't you go visit http://www.ups.com and figure out how much it costs to ship a 37 pound box measuring 31x21x7 from ZIP 77251 (closest metro ZIP Code I'm willing to post here), to wherever you live. Then factor in the costs of ink, labels and gas to drop it off (or the $7 fee for UPS to pick it up), and then tell me why I should pay that freight bill for you.

I'm not really sure your purpose or intent here on my site. If it's here to "win friends and influence people", you're doing a bang-up job...

Nothing else needs to be said this is a little higher than how much I cost and a little different from what I have but just look UP 3 monitor stand and you will find numerous other one with much cheaper ups shipping
Also, mine was about the same weight as that.


Yeah, make friends with you, that was my purpose here, took you long enough to figure it out.

My question didn't get solved as well so I will leave.
