is the option where *I* as the paying customer get to control how packages are delivered to me, and by which service.
And I am happy to pay the associated shipping costs for my choice - I never asked for "free shipping"
I cannot order from Amazon at all, ever, because shipping is "pot luck" and I *MUST* know how something will be shipped BEFORE placing any order.
UPS CAN NOT deliver to me, PERIOD. I can accept FedEx, but need to list a different delivery address. Or I can go with USPS to my home address (preferred)
Amazon REFUSES to let the customer specify a carrier, or even INFORM which carrier will be used, until after you submit your order including payment information. Until they change that I must refuse to order anything from Amazon.
