I was about to place my order, but i saw shipping was too high, I was ordering 2 genomix protocol and stimated shipping was $56 for standard and $64 for xpress.

    Depends on weight really. I got 11 things from the sale (including 4x Orange Triad) and postage was right around $100.

    Australia.

    Most of the time I order from NP postage is around $40-50 for 3-5 items. I bought more this time due to the awesome sale.

    I used to buy from bb.com but got sick of orders consistently taking 3-5 weeks to arrive. My last NP order came in 4 business days.

    I would like to order some NutraPro with all the other supps, but the shipping costs would be astronomic... lol That's frustrating. :-(

    Shipping is crazy.

    I get seller's to send me packages via USPS FLAT RATE.

    Example

    99 Met-rx PROTEIN BARS = $60US or SO
    I had 80 UNIVERSAL BARS shipped FEDEX $35US and it arrived in 3-4 days!
    I asked the shop how they did it, and they said they got massive discounts due to the amount they ship.

    These are big heavy packages and I wonder how business's like bb.com or NP can't offer prices like this.. normally packages are shipped on weight/size...

    Sales for aussies basically means you get 50% of shipping, thats it...the rates are unreal! Im sure it isnt NP's fault, but it has to be looked into.

    Well I guess I will find out. Never had a problem ordering 10+ bottles of fish oils or 3 tubs of DAA.

    Well i spent $200 and shipping was $80, though i guess it wasnt too bad for the amount of items i order. Though i do understand that postage can skyrocket with very few items.

    We all would be happy if they discount int'l shipping. I'm willing to spend more than $500 as long as I dont see the second most hated thing in nutraplanet Out of stock.

    True, this is another issue.

    I think it should constantly be in stock, and they should put out item's even if they don't move as fast as GASPARI or something.. it's a huge reason people come to buy from Nutra!

    They can put out of stock supplements on back-order and let us checkout our orders, as long as they can restock what we have ordered in few days.

    Yeah no idea why they don't do this.

    Also Im willing to put NP in contact with seller's I deal with and constantly send to me with USPS or FEDEX at seriously 1/4 to 1/2 the price Nutra is getting charged for it.

    It's been an issue for years, ive basically given up on sales, ordering because us internationals miss out on sales, shipping is silly.. and I use to spend 3-4k a yr.. i'd order for 5-6 guy's at my gym! I stopped doing it cos it just became too hard!

    Eh

    The problem with selling items that are on backorder is that sometime we don't have an ETA. We've seen hold ups of several weeks - months for some items, no joke.

    Fedex plainly sux, while I've had a few smooth shipments (international), many times they just F*ck things up, and they are so troublesome! Oh, sometimes I forget I actually pay them for shipping my stuff!
    Ordered a package early december, it's like 1-2 days by plane, but then they decide to involve customs check, which is OK, but then they postpone my property even further by sending it it to medicine/drug agency for super slow examination. This is like a MONTH after I paid for the stuff, and it's still locked away until they decide whether I should have my supplements or not.. I know theres a "risk" importing "bodybuilding" supplements, but this is SUCH a goofy process, that I won't spend time or money on anymore. I wasn't notifed and had to call 3 times to find out WHERE my stuff is.
    I guess I have to order within europe, or have small packages sent with DHL or USPS when available. This fedex masquerade is just ridiculous!

    Jesus f*ckinchrist, Fedex is pissin me off! Just had a phone conversation with DHL, which will deliver a package tomorrow evening within a fixed time periord (evening). They have my phone number, and will call when they're there.
    Fedex can just f*ck off, /end rant.

    Now i canīt choose between Fedex or USPS (not option anymore), but still high rates.

    There should be a really low shipping option like other shops (with not tracking and stuff), just the package with my order.
