Why American buyers don't have to pay international postage?

#1

The Beatbuddy is made in China and distributed in Hong Kong.

But why American buyers don’t pay international postage and we have to pay? I am in Melbourne Australia and paid $30 (I think) for international postage.

Good point. We are in fact closer to Hong Kong.

All I know is that they were bulk shipped to the US and then sent on from there, what I don’t understand is why they did not do the same with the shipments to Canada.

Bulk shipment still costs money.

Singular Sound is a US company, so I’m sure they wanted the product in hand to at least do some QC, and packaging. If I were them, I would NOT ship direct from factory either. Most companies don’t ship direct from factory (at least from China) to customer. I feel your pain on the shipping though.

Thanks for that, c.granger, I was going to say this myself. Be it a Canada-based company, I’m sure buyers from Canada would be free from international payments.

Ah, ok. I thought I saw Miami somewhere on the packaging. Is there a Miami in Canada? :lol:

Now this makes sense.
