shipping price UK- Spain?
« on: August 16, 2014, 12:23:28 AM »
Hi
I have a question about shipping. I've bought a hard disk to a UK seller. He wants me to pay 26 pounds for shipping to Spain. I find it exorbitant. Anyone know the official fares or the UK mail official page to look for the fares? thanks

I was quoted 77 for a delivery from within UK - product was only 10!

Costs will vary depending on the delivery service used, Joan. Some are indeed outrageous!

Surely registered mail would be the way to go. No more than around 10 pounds and guaranteed delivery.

Joan - to answer your actual question -
There are a number of options depending on speed and insurance - as can be seen here http://www.postoffice.co.uk/international-parcels
International Standard is here http://www.postoffice.co.uk/mail/international/standard#prices for Europe  0-100g = 3.20    100-250g = 3.70   250-500g = 5.15
The problem is that to keep the "headline" cost down (the cheap price that attracts your attention), many sellers load the postage, whilst some websites charge commission on the item, but not the postage

Spain for the moment.  >:(

Thanks all for the answers  ;)
