Thread: ABU's insane shipping fee

  1. #1

    Default ABU's insane shipping fee

    so i was looking at ABU's website to see how much it would cost me to get a case of their Simple and SDK diapers and.. well.. does anyone know what's with the $400 shipping fee? i was expecting expensive shipping, but this is just ridiculous

    Try https://www.nappiesrus.co.uk/. They handle ABU distribution for the UK, which is where I presume you want them shipped.

    yea i know about this, but i don't really live in the UK. when i made my account i didn't feel comfortable with selecting my country so i just picked something random. but it's not such a big deal, i'll just order something else from a european store like saveexpress. but i'm really curious about that insane $400 shipping price. i ordered stuff from the US before and shipping price never exceeded two digits

    I'm guessing the fee is calculated automatically. Since there's probably an ocean between ABU and you, I'm pretty sure they don't just have a grudge against your country

    I know shipping from the US to NZ, you are easily looking at $100 plus... the thing the really gets me is with lower fuel prices, why doesn't shipping drop in price? It's almost cheaper to buy a seat on an airline for your packages than it is to courier them.

    If you're close enough to Europe for SaveExpress.de to be viable, then you should be able to get reasonable shipping costs from Nappies R' Us. Crossing the English Channel doesn't add that much to shipping.

    A huge portion of that fee could also be import taxes which ABU has no control over. I remember sending a pair of shoes to a friend in Finland and the cost of the shoes went from $60 to $120, then there was a $20 fee for him to pick it up at the customs warehouse.

    Wait a second .. why on earth would you not feel comfortable selecting your own country? I really think that makes no sense at all. I can understand maybe feeling uncomfortable entering an address or phone number, but ones country? That gives away absolutely no information at all, it's so vague. If I told someone I live in Canada ... what exactly does that tell them other than that I live in Canada? The answer is nothing .. there isn't anything they can get from that.

    It makes even less sense if you where even remotely planning on ordering from them because you would need to enter your own country at some point -.-

    While it's a similar question, we're talking about cuddlekitty46's ADISC profile, not the order page of whatever vendor. I looked on that profile before posting my original answer.

    Knowing this, I'd suggest dropping a line to ABU directly to see if the site is calculating properly or if there is an alternative in shipping to your secret hideout.

    I see, misunderstood ... but I am going to ask the same thing anyway XD.
