$20.71 CAD on a $60USD order....just a headsup for Canadian buyers. Shipped quickly though.

Seems reasonable for a large international package to me. I ship international all the time and there is no way I could get rates that good for a long box like this, so Drop is obviously getting a break based on the volume that they do and passing it along to you, shipping from the US is one of the most expensive places in the world to ship international from, we don't subsidize like a ton of other countries, or get artificial low international postage rates because we are a supposed 'third world' country, ie China...

Fair enough Glen, just wanted to give Canadian buyers a headsup. The relative rate is higher than normal for duty costs as the shipping vendor (DHL) charges on brokerage fees at the border. I didn't see anything in the cost breakdown that alluded to impact of size. The charge was HST plus the brokerage charge from DHL.

Oh sorry I totally misunderstood then I thought it was a shipping bill, DHL sucks, but I honestly thought that they charged brokerage fees only if it was past like 3 days or something....anyway I totally get the heads up sorry I butted in. I can't get international shipping rates that low for anything unless it's under 8 oz....24.50 for 1 lb+ for first class mail! And that's the cheapest service I can find
