Default Re: Shipping Cost for parts

Those rates do seem high. I will say this, it's kinda hard to set up the perfect algorithm for shipping costs for a ecommerce site. When you consider international rules are different, all the options within USPS alone, odd size parts that don't fit into flat rate boxes, but a big enough shipment where one box is flat rate and the other one isn't - and then you factor Paypal into that......all I can is it's a bit of dead reckoning and trial and error. We hopefully aren't gouging....and we do hope international folks will ask us to give them a manual freight quote.
