I usually buy cds from a number of vendors in the US who charge postage at cost (usually get global priority). I went to order six cds from Moribund (never used them before) and nearly shit myself at checkout (actually prevented me from going through with the purchase). $33 for airmail postage for six cds to Australia. Fuck me. I imagine they're getting sent with cases, but surely it doesn't cost $33? Others' views on this?

it would cost less than that by first class international (for 6 CDs going to Aussie it would have cost around 17 US bucks) for sure.
they must send all their packages by priority international which is more expensive...

Surely six cds would fit in one of those $10 global priority envelopes. Oh well.

those are also actually more expensive now if interested to know they are $12.95 each

i would not recommend 6 cases CDs shipped by flat rate envelope, not safe enough in my opinion Confused

I can post 6 CD's(w/o cases) for under 15 U$D's(w/o ins., reg., etc.) sent via priority first class.

Note: the USPS will be raising the postage rates each year, so that's why I do my part and recycle stamps. Wink

totally... like a package w/ 4-5 Lp going to CA can be shipped by media if you add one shirt you have to ship it by priority for the whole pack.. however it's CHEAPER to ship the 4-5 LP by media and the shirt by first class separately than together.. go figure... Laughing

Try Belgium...to a foreign country it was cheaper to send the LP and the cover in seperate packages then together.
Though it might have changed...since they've changed their tariffs thrice this year. Always up ofcourse. Last year the excuse was high fuel costs. Now fuel costs are down and they still raise their prices, no explanation ofcourse.
Same shit, different country.

I just updated our Ares Kingdom merch page with the new US postage rates.

6 CDs (with cases) to Australia should be $17.64 for the postage. Not including handling, packaging, paypal fees, etc though.

Their web store postage calculator is probably just messed up.

Not trying to derail this thread, but has anyone else been having problem getting packages from the US to Canada? I've had three packages sent out to me from the US (one from NWN!, the other from someone on this board and one from ebay) in early May and none of them have arrived yet. Now the one from ebay, who knows, but the person on this board and NWN! are obviously more than reliable and I know they both shipped right quick around the 8-10th of May and I still haven't seen anything. For one to get lost, okay, but two at the same time? That'd be quite the fluke.
