Wanted to treat myself to a faithlife T-Shirt and a set of Logos stickers.  Great deal at $11.15 (Canadian dollars) !!  Except it was going to cost $143.27 to ship it 10 minutes over the boarder.  Perhaps not. 

But a good story.

Ouch that is ridiculous. Is that due to the import fee/tax?

No, it is standard Brill pricing.

Brill? Faithlife t-shirt and Logos stickers? Wrong thread, maybe?

That's what one does when in too much of a hurry Embarrassed One orders one's tee shirts from Brill ... (and tea shirts from Blackwell's perhaps?) Big Smile

Even a coffee mug cost almost double the item's price to have it shipped to Florida, so I passed and got a cooler one at Ross Dress For Less hehehe

Try googleing for package forwarding services. I've never used any US based ones, but made very good experience with getting stuff from Japan.

There are three of four US based services that ship goods abroad for a fraction of that cost.

Wow, that is steep. I had a similar issue ordering a lifeproof phone case from the US to Canada. They offered free shipping within the US but not to Canada and the price was about the cost of the case which was the only option for shipping they used. Instead, I took them up on their offer to ship it free to a friend in the US and they sent it to me using the good ol' post office which only cost $10. I don't know what shipping method Faithlife uses but I'm not sure why more companies don't use the post office.

You could use Borderlinx or some other package forwarding service. That's much cheaper.
