They must have seen how much of a weaboo you are and raised the shipping cost at the last second. :meow: That'll teach you.

Fucking americans. Five bucks is nothing for shipping, to Canada alone I usually can expect $20+ shipping, and then have to pay duty fees on top of that which are usually equal to half the purchase price. I'd kill for $5 shipping, and I don't even live on the other side of the world where shit's fucking insane.

Try living in Australia where absolutely NOTHING from an online US store (which I still buy from because they have everything Australian stores don't) gets shipped out here for five bucks. Most of my online purchases have cost 20 dollars minimum in shipping fees. A number of them have hovered around the $50 mark and one of them cost me over $100 just to get here, that alone dubled how much I was expecting to pay for the actual item :doh:

Five bucks is a bargain and barely enough to buy a coffee these days :p

Every time I want to buy something from an American store the shipping is always almost double what the item is. Sometimes I hate living in Australia :(

It's the only thing I despise about living here (well that and the fact we have little to do and see compared to the US and Europe, and the fact everything's expensive here relative to our pay rates and dollar-value :doh:) But the reason why I keep buying online - even with ridiculous shipping charges is because of variety. I have very picky fashion tastes and there is just so little in local shops I'm happy with (and this is coming from a guy who lives pretty close to a nice, big mall too). Online I have found clothes, shoes and accessories I never would have dreamed of having even though I always wished I did. Here if you walk into a designer shop they might have six different pairs of bland-looking jeans all priced at $150 each. Online I can browse through thousands of different types, see something I like more and pay much less for it :dummy: Though after shipping and handling fees it works out about the same anyway :hmm: Still - I do it for the sake of variety and getting stuff I know few others in this country will have =p But yes, it sucks majorly when the shipping fees outdo the item price, at least paying for the item itself makes you feel like you are getting something. I'd rather spend $70 and have $50 of it go to the item and $20 for shipping, than have $20 for the item and $50 for shipping :doh:

I charge 10 dollars for a 50x50 icon.
5 USD for shipping an item sounds mighty inexpensive for me, especially because I've bought several crap overseas over the years.


Grow up, kiddo.

They'll always have the lowest possible costs for shipping listed obviously, or else no one is going to buy it. I live in Canada, so I'm used to seeing something listed as $5 shipping only to have it later ring up to $10 or $15.

Also you can buy that kind of adapter at any computer store.

If you're saving money online compared to buying in-store, you really shouldn't complain over five dollars. Doing so just makes you sound really, really ungrateful and entitled.

There was something I really wanted to buy online (from a store in Canada I think) which was about $60 and when I went and calculated how much it would cost to send it to Australia they wanted an extra $100 in shipping fees! :wtf: I could understand if it was a large/heavy item or something fragile. But this was a simple fashion accessory not made of any fine components. I've bought entire clothes that had cheaper shipping prices than that :disbelief:

Needless to say, I reluctantly didn't buy it, though I never could find the same from anywhere else :(

I always just assumed that's the price you have to pay for living in Australia. Move your country closer to the rest of the world's population already!

So go to a store and get the item in person or find a website with cheaper shipping. I don't get why you're all shocked that it's $5 for shipping - that's kind of the norm.

i just don't think websites should lie like that :/ they should probably post the shipping costs for different regions ON the site instead of telling you after you've typed in all of your information.
