Why does a certain product qualify for Free Shipping, but a similar one does not?

We may stock certain products in our warehouses and ship nearly identical products directly from the manufacturer, thereby resulting in two similar items having different shipping options and prices. For instance, a manufacturer may offer to ship an item from their factory directly to our customer and prepay the freight, which we will in turn pass to the customer in the form of Free Shipping. On the other hand, we may purchase a large truckload order of a SIMILAR item from that manufacturer to stock our warehouses, which results in a huge cost savings for us through purchasing in bulk. Again, we will pass this savings to the customer through lower prices, but since the merchandise will be shipping from our warehouses, it is necessary for us to charge the actual shipping cost for an order.
