Wow i was shocked when i went to checkout for my product

I expected overseas prices to be a little more expensive...a little more not alot more.

I made 1 booster pack which would cost me $5, booster pack of 7 cards

So there were  3 shipping options, the first one was $44!! $44 for a mere light as a feather booster pack, the next shipping was just as bad with $36 shipping, that is crazy. The last one was $14 shipping With a shipping time of 45 days, that is like more than a month.

There is no way i can waste that kind of money for 1 booster pack

I responded to the Facebook message you sent us about this and wanted to make sure you saw my reply. It's below for your reference:

"Hi Michael, our shipping prices are generated in real time from the calculators at USPS.com. So what you see is what you get. If you have paid less for shipping in the past then that's likely because the shipper used padded envelopes. However, that's not something we do anymore because there was a high percentage of orders that were damaged. (and USPS is terrible about giving customers/shippers refunds). So now everything is shipped in boxes with packaging materials inside to protect the orders.

We ship products to Australia almost everyday (you have a thriving game market down there!) and the prices you were quoted are very similar to what others are paying, so this isn't a bug in the system.

I should tell you that in the near future (1-2 months) we expect to roll out new shipping options/prices that our volume has qualified us for. So if you want to wait until then, you should enjoy some better pricing. Hope that helps"
