    i was wondering as well. Iwent a placed one item in my cart on the sister site and said shipping was $52.

    Ever think off offering small packet air mail or ground service for small orders to us up here in Canada it cost only around $5-7 usps.

    i know what you mean, i know for sure usps has a small packet/parcel service that is cheap. I get stuff from people in the states in classifieds and for a small box the shipping has been all under $8.

    As of May 14th USPS increased their postage rates, and dropped several shipping methods in the process.

    Further information on international changes can be found at USPS - International Shipping Simplified

    yah i dont understand. I shipped stuff from bb.com and it cost 8 bucks to canada for shipping. NP is at least 17 and that is not even EMS, for a bottle of retain2. I love, LOVE Nutraplanet but you cant buy a 25$bottle and charge $20 shipping....


    ... what if instead of using a box you use a tough envelope like IBE does...?

    Any small airmail parcel/packet without tracking would be cheaper and are still insured. That would be ideal for most of my orders.

    And yes we all do love the nutraplanet you guys have great prices compared to our local stores.

    Please be aware, this is not us raising the prices...it's USPS. I feel the same disappointment, but this is completely out of our hands. We're not charging extra for the shipping, as a matter of fact, the shipping rates on our site come directly from either USPS or FedEx.

    Even stamps cost more to mail a friggin' letter!

    But rest assured, we will look into it and see if there is anything we can do with these insane USPS rates...

    well ........... has sent me abunch of stuff in a plastic envelope and shipping last week was 8 bucks as well. I have spent a bajillion dollars at NP and when i think of all the money that went just into shipping Now i realize that it is USPS raising their rates, but could you not use a variable weight envelope for the little stuff like 11-oxo, retain, aPCT...

    I've just noticed the increased shipping cost as well. I also believe that envelope shipping may be a good way to keep shipping costs down on smaller items. For example, I'll be ordering 4 bottles of sesamin, for which the cheapest shipping option is Priority Mail, costing $19.90! EMS, which used to cost around $17-19, now costs $28.50!.

    I don't think the postman from Canada Post can come all the way down to US to pick up the parcels and go back North to deliver in Canada. Moreover, the postage cost in Canada is actually very high IMHO.

    I don't believe Canada Post will deal with orders until they enter Canada. They take over from USPS for non-express mail orders once the item goes through customs (USPS express mail gets tranferred to the courier Purolator, at least from my experience). Canada Post does have and Xpresspost option that is quite fast. I don't know how this could be used from the US though.

    Purolator would be the Canada post option. Xpress post and the others are only for domestic shipments.

    I have a feeling the cost has gone up for smaller shipments, but works out if anything better for larger orders from looking at the order thats waiting in my cart for capsual machines to come in

    customs doesn't help either. I had 2 packages in a row opened by customs. 1st was during the 200$+ gets 50% shipping Shipping was 13$ off but then I get a handling fee for opening my box of 13$. Just go a notice for my 2 second box (ordered it a week later) and it has a handling fee of 16$. Not NP's fault, I'm just venting.

    Edit: Just got my 2nd package, its clearly labeled yet customs wrote down "cosmetic products" and charged me GST, PST and a handling fee.

    *drool* Canadian distributor ... But I'm not sure if that will work. I'm making quite good chat with my friend who lives right near the border and will be using him to bring some stuff up. Not perfect solution, but it's working for now. Getting my NP fix
