Almost committed then noticed the $33 shipping to the uk... :/ Looks like amazon at £90 next day.

Massdrop is scummy, they noticed people complaining about the shipping cost and bouncing (rightly so), so now they simply hide the shipping cost until you add the item to your cart. Dark patterns like these further reduce trust and transparency and I hope the product manager (if any) takes notice.

Odd, Canadian here. I still see the shipping cost up front under the price. Are you on mobile? It's very clear on desktop.

not on my desktop since they revamped the pages recently, the shipping cost only shows when you click to buy.

Anyone got a picture of the hidden shipping cost?

From Lithuania - maybe it affects anyone from Europe.

For anyone not seeing a shipping cost, can you confirm that you have a valid saved shipping address in your profile? Just trying to troubleshoot why it's not displaying for some.

Yes, Items being shipped right now and many in the past to the same address, It always used to display the shipping charge but a few weeks ago it vanished.

That sucks. Shipping is the first thing I check when I see a deal I like.

You may be right there, gauging the response from the community, personally I think next to the items price it is the most important information, clicking on the commit button is not a great way to find out.
Just note though, I did go ahead and order through Amazon and can add that this is quite good value (shipping aside) bought as a standalone unit to pair with my Fiio X3ii which has 120 gb of mainly flac files ripped from cd's it is a very clean Amp and enough power for most headphoones, K712 pro and K7XX on med gain med volume, K812 pro, 400S and X2's on low gain med volume, HD600's and HD6XX on hi gain one third ish volume, quite impressed with the performance.

I don't think they're testing our response as much as they're probably testing how many clicks they get to buy something with/without the shipping displayed as well as how many of those people click through to actually join the drop after seeing the total with/without having seen the shipping beforehand. Nobody's going to come out and say "I love the shipping not displaying" but if it results in more purchases then it's better for them (as much as we hate it).
