I guess in CH where nothing is free and posting a parcel costs a small fortune, "free shipping" must seem peculiar to them
Not the case. I've bought bike parts from the UK costing the equivalent of 60fr with free postage. When the parcel arrived it had been opened and resealed (with tape saying customs inspected).

The "value" on the outside of the package stated 42 and inside, on the invoice they had opened, it stated "Goods: 42, Delivery: Free" and the parcel arrived with no charges.
