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.

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...

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...

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!

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...

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?
