Thank you for explaining, MrPen. I do not live in th USA, I live in Canada. Many shipping companies - UPS, FedEx, etc charge U.S. brokerage fees after the fact - that is, the shipper does not see them and the receiver sometimes doesn't even get the bill until a month or so after receiving the goods. It usually includes a brokerage fee, a fee for posting a bond to release the goods, a fee for not paying the fees before it arrives, etc. Yes, this is over and above any shipping cost the shipping fulfilment company charges. Yes, this is over and above the taxes and duties collected. On an item of this value it can easily amount to the cost of the item or more. (The post office charges $10 Canadian for collecting customs and taxes, but the USPS cost of a trackable package to Canada is just over $30 USD so your information tells me they are not using the post.) I am better off buying direct from you in the UK. (And hopefully my long explaination will help my fellow Canadians avoid an unpleasant shock.) Likely MassDrop is not really practical, in general, for us in Canada.
