Retailers, don't undersell your fulfilment/delivery capabilities

While shopping for an item on one of the leading omni-channel retailer, I was pleasantly surprised and frustrated at the same time. The reason - the retailers in this instance actually showed me the delivery date on the product page (over 80% of the shoppers expect to see delivery date and cost on the product page today), however, the date shown is Sep 21st, 5 business days out with $11.95 as the shipping cost. Now, why would someone have a 5 business days delivery named as Expedited delivery and charge their customers $11.95 for it. This is a fantastic example of a botched implementation of a great idea and sure shot way to negatively impact conversion.
