Shipping from the states is actually pretty cheap... (from 10-15$ usually)
but the problem is... in the USA, all companies use UPS as a carrier, since its cheap, fast and they collect the packages for them at the warehouse....
while with USPS Intl. shipping, they have to drive to the post office, and fill some papers... that's why most retailers dont like shipping with USPS, and will charge "labor time/extra fees" for it...
its stupid I know... but that's how it works over there...
