shipping model, it is the favored model

and orders $200.01 and up would be $12.50.
It is very important to cover all
contingencies. In the ranges above,
you can see that the lower range ends at $50
and the next higher range starts at $50.01.
If the next range started at $51, then an
item costing $50.25 would not have been
