Postage from the USA to UK? WTF?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to buy some wideband lambda controller boards from wide-band.com. They are cheap at only $20 each.

"Shipping" for a board smaller than a credit card?

$93....

Can't stuff just be posted in US Mail?

 

I can buy stuff from China for a £ or two including 'shipping' and while it may take a couple of weeks, it always gets here...

The Chinese government subsidizes the shipping.

Companies who don’t want to deal with customs and international shipping may outsource.

or jack up the price to offset the hassle.

just have them shipped to someone here domestically and let them forward them to you.

It's cheap if they use the Brit post office.  Fedex and UPS are much more expensive.
