Not to mention the 'First order via Wire transfer payment' rule.
I have to admit, $160 for your items is a total jip. I placed a $700 order that weighed in at just over 8kg and the shipping was $160. The only reason we went with Freestyle was the better choice they had. I think if I have to order oddball stuff in the future(I.E., Adox consumables), I will be looking at AG in the UK.
My impression with AG is that he chooses not to exploit any customers be they UK or overseas based. I'd certainly contact him to see what he quotes in shipping charges.
