5 Shipping is not an exact science, some cost more, so the prices are artificially inflated for the case when it costs more to ship
6 Packing it isn't instant to ship an item and you have to buy the items that you are going to pack with
1. Expensive to set up stock in a store and hire workers
3. You got to stock the store and make sure everything is looking perfect
5. Customer covers the shipping, so why does it matter about the price of the initial product being higher? (ex: Starbuzz being $22 online and paying money to ship it. SB is $17 in store and no shipping)

So I wonder, why is stuff more expensive online?
