haha your order is consider small then what I have. I done $700+ order before. Shipping by then isnt that much of a deal but most of mine are parts.

We just did a big order from ehobby. About $200 shipping. Redwolf was about $80. When you factor in the prices you'd pay in canada, it's fair. For instance, ehobby has like $25 CIRAS's, mark them up by 100% for S&H and it's still a good deal.

Ehobby came within a week or so. Redwolf was sent express - it got to customs in 3 days, through customs in 2 hours, and for the last three weeks has been "lost" by Canada Post. Not sure if we'll ever see that one again...hopefully we can work out a refund or something...not sure what to do if Canada Post loses a Hong Kong Post package that probably wasn't insured. It was worth $500.

Yeah, maybe the base price of the items is higher here, when you factor in the cost of shipping from Asia, it's often cheaper, easier and faster to buy in Canada.
I would have to disagree with that statement. My experience has led me to believe that purchasing from overseas can be considerably cheaper than ordering from either stores quoted above. For example my last 3 overseas Pantac purchases have been roughly 30% cheaper than purchasing from in country sellers. That's includes base price, shipping, duties, PST and GST and smiles.

That being said airsoftparts.ca is a gem of a store which I am compelled to order from at least once a month from.

Wow this has gone off topic. He merely stated wether or not he would get a discount or not, not if the shipping is absurd, or cheap.

Redwolf already answered this question before the thread was even made.

Anyways... I think I remember seeing something about discounts from Redwolf however I think the minimum order amount was like $1000 or 1500 (that's USD)

EDIT: I'll try to find you a link to confirm that.

EDIT: So it looks like you'd have to be one of their "wholesalers" in order to get the free shipping thing. However I'm pretty sure I saw a page somewhere that said they would ship for free or something with orders over $1000 however it was probably one of those wholesaler things where the wholesalers will do more than one large order and will do it multiple times. Note, I cannot access the "wholesaler section" to confirm this as I am not a wholesaler however I remember seeing something to that effect...
False. Otherwise, tell them to refund the $700 I paid them for my last order.
