About shipping costs

Do not underestimate the cost of shipping your items from the U.S.A. to your country. They could easily cancel out the savings of buying directly in the U.S.A., especially for large and heavy items.

Shipping costs are calculated based the total size and weight of the items that you purchase as well as the shipping distance.
Of course, the smaller and lighter the items, the cheaper shipping costs will be. However, because some shipping carriers offer “flat rate” boxes, total shipping costs might be the same or only slightly more expensive, whether you have one item shipped to you or 5. This is especially the case for small electronics items like iPods or for DVDs.

Here are some examples of (approximate) shipping costs, including insurance:

6-8 day shipping to France through U.S. Postal Services for 1 Apple iPod Touch 16GB - $15
6-8 day shipping to France through U.S. Postal Services for 3 Apple iPod Touch 16GB - $32.50
6-8 day shipping to France through U.S. Postal Services for 8 Apple iPod Touch 16GB - $42.50


5 day shipping to Singapore through U.S. Postal Services for 1 pair of jeans - $30
6-8 day shipping to Singapore through U.S. Postal Services for 3 pairs of jeans - $50

6 day shipping to the U.K. through U.S. Postal Services for 1 Apple MacBook Pro 13” - $80
