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.

they also have flat rate envelopes and boxs.

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

great, no more NP for me, it went from high to friggin high
05-15-2007, 06:35 PM
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...?

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...

sweet, yah try a variable weight envelope....
05-15-2007, 10:39 PM
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...

this affects anyone who chooses the USPS shipping method

It does suck....i noticed the same thing on my order the other day....shipping cost more then ever...but like stryder said...its not NP's fault guys!
05-16-2007, 11:43 AM
i agree it is not their fault, but they should looke at other options.... like $ dependng on weight. 1 bottle reatain or 2 or 3 can go in a envelope...
05-16-2007, 12:27 PM
Yea that sucks a big time! this are insane especially for big orders better NP take the money than usps! but it says priority international 6 10 days b4 it was like 2 to 4weeks did they increase the quality service!i mean
anything differnet than raisin price!

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've had some customers suggest Canada Post...not familiar with that. Anyone have any info or feedback on this?

i wonder how come .....rules anyone? can get fedex international express for like 76 $ lets say for 20lbs order ! i wish NP in the futur ll get an arrangement with fedex or ups for international so NP ll be perfect for international customers since its already perfect for the US for me thats only weak point with NP but keep groing§

the little engine that could...
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...

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

i dunno i get packages of three or four bottles from board classifieds, they come airmail small parcel or pack standard with no tracking and are cheap all have been under $8.00. Maybe it'S letter post or something but all have been USPS.
05-16-2007, 10:21 PM
usps airmail is the cheapest and most effective way to ship to Canada
05-17-2007, 09:39 AM
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.

Hey, what if Nutraplanet had a Canadian Distributer????
Is this possible, i know USP Labs is making a Canadian Warehouse, maybe you can join in
05-17-2007, 06:04 PM

*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
