    Cheaper shipping to the UK


    Is NP looking to offer a cheaper option for international shipping? Currently it is around $24 - $27 and when combined with import tax takes the cost of the supplements near enough to what they cost here in the UK.

    The only reason I ask is that bodybuilding.com has recently started offering a cheaping shipping option only costing approx $12, but with longer delivery times.

    Thanks,

    S.

    I was charged 18 pounds at UK boarder!
    8 pounds VAT and 10 for admistration fees.... I am ok to pay VAT, but admistration fees....
    think twice if you want to use fedex shipping; my friend works for UK Boarder Agency told me they do check fedex packs a lot.

    Same here from my recent order with NP. Shipping plus tax plus admin fee comes to around $52...geez or £35. Quickly erodes the savings you make!

    I order my hairloss medication from the states and the supplier simply put 'samples' on the box and as a result I dont get charged tax. Can't NP offer the cheaper shipping and mark the boxes as samples too? It would be so much cheaper for us brits.
