    my last order (which was a day ago) was by fedex and i didnt get charged with any custom fees although i did get charged custums fees in the past. give it a try!

  4. **** now I understand the low prices for shipment are only with Fedex and not USPS... I pay always taxes with Fedex and they charge me 10 Euros for processing it. Fedex sucks... So NP has not improved the things with shipment only hidding the highest cost from USPS. Not fair guys....

  5. so i ordered yet again from nutra planet...this time a kilo of beta alanine.

    i used the same shipping method as before (International Economy) and this time they (nutra) used USPS instead of Fedex.....

    I was under the impression that it was ALWAYS Fedex as i prefer that a lot better than usps (faster shipping at the same price)

    I was wondering if you guys could somehow clarify which shipper will be used so we can pick.....

    I am afraid i will probably get charged for brokerage fees this time because of USPS shipper...but i will keep it updated.

    No nutra hate....just some feedback from an international customer.

    THANKS!

  6. bump with an update

    i just received a package from nutraplanet and no brokerage fees!!!

    i encourage canadians to get on nutraplanet.

    my only complaint is no choice between fedex and usps (with fedex being the superior choice)

  7. Funny how Fedex can be superior in Canada and so crappy in the rest of the world

    It is also funny to see that NP does not answer to our remarks about they fact that they have not changed anything really but just hide the international option we were all using that was the most expensive, inviting to use Fedex instead (without mentioning it) but paying custom fee which is even worst as this could be very very expensive.

  9. I found that if your ordering bulky items then the fedex option is better because their rate seems to be a bit better as the weight increases. While I still have to pay import tax on it it's still less than choosing usps because their rates seem linear for weight. When I order just pills I use usps where I don't pay the tax but I pay a slightly higher shipping rate. Mainly because the import rate is based on the price of goods shipped.

    I'm located in japan if that makes a difference.

  10. Seriously, USPS FLAT RATE BOXES, TRACKED $40 fits like 8 x 1kg tubs + 20 bottles.. and it costs like $40-45US to AUSTRALIA.
    Arrives within 2 WEEKS.

    I'd rather this, than pay $120 to have something arrive in a week and a half!

    could NP provide this??

  12. Fedex is not the best choice to Canada, My past 2 orders using USPS has been both charged taxes and opened.

    FYI 8 1 kilo jars will never even come close to fitting into a flat rate box. The biggest flat rate box 12" x 12" x 5-1/2", and one Kilo container is roughly 7 1/2" x 5" x 5". I honestly dont see you fitting more than 4 kilo jars in one.... maybe only three.

    You would also have the weight limit to worry about also... 8 kilo jars is going to surpass the max 20lb weight limit on the largest flat rate box.

  17. I would love to see flat rate boxes as an option It would knock my APO shipping down a bit

    20lbs limit with 12x12x5-1/2 and $40? sounds good to me.. very good, indeed..

  19. Posting in old topic but here is my experience:

    Shipment to my country (Brazil) at NP is too high, is that a problem of NP site or are the rates just....high?

    For example:
    1x Testopro = International Economy (1-2 weeks) $25.2
    or USPS International Economy (1-2 weeks) $30.25

    but other stores (no mention), i would pay $11 using Global DHL Post or USPS First Class Mail International.

    Are there any plans to use cheaper ways to send internationally at NP? Because at NP there are some awesome Brands/sups that i canīt find at other places, but i only donīt buy there because of these shipment rates

  20. Yah Nutra is a great company and has great customer service but when you have to use USPS it just takes all that away. I used to get my stuff in 24 hours sometimes now it takes a week if I order express. The price is about the same too.
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

    yeah.. I would like to see cheaper international rate too..

  22. Cheaper international shipping would gain you a lifetime buyer (me)

  23. i have been here so long and am dying to order some stuff here that I can't get anywhere else but getting hit with high shipping costs and then fees when it gets to my door is ridiculous. How does bb.com do it?

    I really want to order from here, but being 21 wallet rapage is not cool....

  24. bump to get an answer

    I want to make an order by tommorow afternoon and would really like an answer

    ???

  26. How does BB.com do it?? They pay the shipping to the Canadian border then have Canada Post deliver it the rest of the way. Nutra is not a big enough company to provide this service. You have to understand that BB is at least 100 times larger...to put it in perspective BB is Walmart and Nutra is your mom and pop store.

    Ditto. When the shipping cost can be roughly estimated as 40-50% of the actual order cost (eg: order $100 of stuff, shipping $45-50), it forces us to make large orders in the range of two to three hundred dollars to lessen the pain of the shipping cost. But I don't often actually *want* that many products, it's just bulking up the order for the sake of it.

    Or in my current situation, I just want to top up on a couple of items. I don't want to stock up on anything, I'm after 4 bottles max. But nearly $50 shipping on a $100 order is just nuts - I could make the same order from the 'other' store and the difference in shipping could buy me another bottle of something.

  28. Has anyone from Canada recently purchased Orange Triad? I have bought it before from BB but they now won't ship to Canada, as they said they were told it will not cross the border due to the vitamin K in it? Yet we can buy it up here in Canada albeit at an inflated price? I don't get it.

    How do I order by USPS to Poland? Fedex sucks as they send you a bill later on top of the shipping costs.

    So, how do I select USPS?

    There's a checkbox for USPS Quotes Only, on the right, as you're checking out.
