    To be fair and transparent, we have a minimum threshold price on USPS shipments because we incur fees associated with USPS postage and processing via a third party. This fee allows us to integrate electronic processing, postage purchasing, and delivery confirmation which gives you trackability. We can circumvent these fees but we would have to manually process all USPS packages by hand and there would be no trackability -- at our current volume that would not only be unfeasible but unproductive.

    And as John was stating, our shipping expense is our largest overhead. When you pay $40K more than you collected in shipping costs in a given month, I'd safely say that's not a source of profitability.

  4. I have a meeting set up with DHL to potentially offer another choice for international shipping. Hopefully this will offer our valued international customers a cost saving option. We are looking at revamping our entire shipping structure which will make shipping more reasonable for everyone.

    If any of our international customers can help us by providing contact information or courier specific details on cost effective shipping, we are more than interested in exploring them.

  5. You could try using Canada Post (won't let me put a link in)for Canada. I believe this is who BB uses. Just a suggestion.

  6. I briefly looked into Canada Post a while ago and was informed that we could only ship via CP if we were in Canada. Recently we looked into this again and discovered that there are brokers that allow us to ship to Canada and they deliver it to CP and CP delivers it to the end user. This option incurred extra fees and from what I understand, requires us to charge duties and taxes up front.

    Do you know if we can ship via Canada Post outside these 3rd party brokers? Does BB.com charge for duties and taxes upfront for Canadian shipments?

    You ordered two items and paid high shipping?

    Did you order over night?


    Shipping is crazy period. USPS calls the shots on shipping, or ups, or whomever. And, the price is kicked to customers. Many times, as I have learned since getting into selling supplements, the usps quote is normally higher than what my site will quote and (when I actually get it running fully) i'll probably loose some money on shipping...

    Last time I bought form bb.com it was a flat 15.00 rate for small stuff (6 small bottles) and 35.00-40.00 for bigger stuff (20 pounds misc.).

    Will this be with tracking or without??

    Thanks

  13. They give you the choice of Fedex, or USPS. and the choice of express or standard.

  14. For Canada, the two most inexpensive shipping methods listed are (for 5 pounds of protein):
    1) Canada Post (5-12 days)- $15.07
    2) CanadaFEdEX Express (2-3 days) - $29.08
    I have only used the Canada Post option in the past and you do not have to pay taxes or duties as they are included in the costs. I would way prefer to use NP but I can not justify getting dinged with taxes and duties plus higher shipping costs.

    Also another site uses the folowing info:
    -CanadaPost Parcel rates are based on a flat rate (up to 5 pounds) of $16.03. Only $0.69 for each additional pound.
    -Your parcels are "pre cleared" with Canadian Customs base on our agreement with them. So no Customs Delays.
    -All Tax and duty are prepaid and therefore nothing is collected at delivery.
    -Parcels are in Canada Post system and can be tracked in route from canadapost.ca
    hope this helps

  15. From iherb
    USPS Priority Mail International
    The limit is the package must be under 3 pounds (1360 grams)
    and the order must not cost any more than $80us.

    It costs $4

    DHL and UPS both cost $24.27 for 5.30 lbs (2.4 kg). For 10.60 lbs (4.81 kg) its $34.59 for both.This is an express option, fully tracked. There is no limit on the amount you can spend.

    This is shipping to Australia

    you need to have stuffs in your shopping cart, and then go to check out, you will see your shipping rate for your address. And you can go back to shopping cart or proceed check out.
    The price is about 2/3, surely not as cheap as iherb but hopefully with better shipping.

  20. Thank you guys SOOOO much!!!

    Just having a look and the prices are so much better!!

    This is going to make me order a hell of a lot more often now.

    Thanks heaps!

    Yes!!! exactly what a big surprise!!!! I did a simulation of my last order and the cost changed from $44.50 $26.95. You managed to do it and this is a big change for us out of US. Thank you so much for always trying to make us happy. You reach a new milestone in your business.

  22. It's been in the works for a while, and I just want to say thank you for your patience!

    And also, rest assured we're not done yet...we will continually work towards aggressive international rates

  26. DAMN IT why nutra`s change the carriers options?????
    I use USPS Priority and is on time but now i see "Standard Shipping (3-7 days)" and is more expensive!!!!!!

    I NEED A RESPONSE

  27. That's strange Max...shipping rates should be lower now NOT more expensive. Please PM me the items and quantities you are wanting to purchase as well as your address and we'll look into the rate quote to ensure everything is on par.

  28. the internancional shiping is high for me too

  29. Hey guys, Im new to this forum, Lol, this page has pretty nice prices, Ok I have some noob questions:

    1. I already saw international shipping is low,ok. Thats cool. But Im trying to order some stuff, and I noticed ordering 10 items is the price same as ordering 1 item. Is that correct?

    2. I may sound greedy, but Can I get any coupon/discount as first time customer?

    K thanks Guys, any comments is welcome.

    Btw, I really thank to all those brave foreing fellas that asked for a cheaper shipping. And Stryder too, 1 new page added to favs.
