Topic: shippng prices on items from the JB store

Hi,

I was wondering if there are any fans here from Europe or the Far East who have tried to purchase items from the store lately.

Recently i tried to purchase some CDs and T shirts but was shocked at the shipping calculator.  A single T shirt of $19 costs over $47 to ship to Singapore.

While i am sure there was no ill intent in such exorbitant pricing quotes, i think the shipping calculator needs to be moderated and revised.

peace,
Keane

Sadly, shipping costs overseas from the US are ridiculous. Having grandkids in Germany means the wife is constantly giving me boxes of presents to ship via the post. Regular parcel post for a small 5 pound box to there is usually around $50. Then you have the customs paperwork to fill out and that is overhead for J&R that has to be covered. That box usually contains about $25 worth of goodies, and no, I can't broach that issue. hmm

yes shipping prices have gone up but i do understand about the store's calculator also
they have been improving it over the years I know but i also know that International shipments have unique considerations

FWIW keane.phang (welcome to the forum by the way) if you wish, i would be happy to facilitate a sale for you - get the item and ship to you for my cost if you want
it might take some time etc.
i just did a quick check and it looks like i can mail a one pound package to Singapore for a little less than 25 dollars or so.
if you decide to try, please send me an email. like i said it might take me a while to get to it, get it and send it etc but i truly would be happy to help, you know up to a certain price of a shirt or two or something, not a guitar or litho LOL
of course i don't know much about the customs etc but that would be on your end.
anyway i'd nail down the price better and we can work thru paypal
i wouldn't want a fan friend - Bonabuddy - to go without desired Joe merch!
Tammy C. in MoJohio helped me out way back when there was no Joe store by getting me a Joe shirt I DESPERATELY NEEDED and for that and other help from friends, i am just trying to pay it forward
