The extent of fees has gotten ridiculous the last couple of years, with fees often running $25 or more, typically a "service fee," but then things like an "order processing fee" is also tacked on. When all the fees are added, it often can account for a 25 percent increase in the overall cost of what you end up paying. I find that additional cost very exorbitant, and there should be some control over such excessive fees.
