I've made a mention of this in the miscellaneous thread but I want to know the charging scheme of Shipito. Here's an example of what I wanna buy (2 x College Football Jerseys - OK, it's not BDs but still wanna ask).

- $120 for 2 x College Football jerseys (Oregon Ducks)

- $5 for shipping from seller to shipito

- $8.50 for shipito's mail out fee

- $??? for shipping from shipito to buyer via priority mail or fedex

all prices are USD and is that right to say that's how it is?

It really depends on the speed of service you are wanting and what the weight of jerseys are. I will guess that if they are about 5 lbs. According to the Shipito shipping calculator, shipping ranges from approx. $27 - $50 via USPS.

Cool so by my calculations i should be charged $13.96??? does that seem right,its no big deal but i have been charged $16.95 so was wondering why? I guess i could email amazon but thought someone may know why or that i missed some fine print etc.

Did you use the currency converter to pay in $AUS or is the $16.95 in US dollars ?

Definitely does not seem right unless you have ordered a particularly large boxset :blink:

Hi guys,

About to get a blu ray player for christmas so had a quick look on amazon.uk and the prices seem better than local prices. Having never purchased from them before what are delivery times normally like?

Also my player will not be multi region for blu ray but from my readings just confirming that I should be fine with anything ordered from uk as they are the same blu ray region as us right?

Am I also correct in that one blu ray disc will cost me 3.69pds for shipping?

Thanks
