Different rates for same product

Hello,

I ordered quotes for the same product from 3 different websites. But to my dismay, it showed 3 different international shipping charges for the same product with the same dimensions. How could this be ? I can understand the price differences in VAT and customs ? But for shipping, bit out of the place, isn't it ?

Re: Different rates for same product

yes very true. It's not the minimal price difference I'm talking about.

Actually I have already placed the order regardless of the cost. But the only thing that concerned me is why the international shipping cost is different. Since the cost is taken by UPS I believe, shouldn't it be same for the same product with same dimension ?

Re: Different rates for same product

shipping prices take into account many factors such as bank fees, insurance, and other service charges and is calculated by the system automatically.
