Wat?? Shipping is insane. Why?
Caught this during checkout. Not only is the shipping not free, but...


PostNL $33.61

EMS / Speedpost $47.64

ePacket $19.68

China Post $22.01

DHL Express $52.55

Sing Post $25.41

Regular Air Mail $20.57

Air Mail Routed by Fasttech $18.32



Did somebody accidentally add a zero someplace?

This is only $20, how can shipping a battery powered clock (batterys not included) be so much?

Why even carry a product that nobody will buy, if they have to pay so much for shipping?

This one is bigger, and weighs more, and has free shipping.



Just checked another online seller. I won't say which one, (so don't hypervenilate, just use that paper bag like I told you DJ ) but the mystery place will have the same clock delivered by TOMMOROW to my door for a total cost less than Fasttech, with their cheapest shipping.

I have put it in my cart, just to check but it's not eligible for free shipping.

Size matters.

"Dimensional weight" is most likely the main issue here.

This one is bigger though in all dimensions, and heavier. Less to ship.


Or do you mean that in the sense of the Hyperdimensional Physics model? lol

Internal battery issues... I had the same insane results with SKU 5928101 (shipping to Europe). If you search for this sort of things, try in the cave of the forty thieves, they won't deliver it for tomorrow but at least they ship it free.

Nope. Description specifies battery (AA) not included.

I know. However they consider it the same way. Funnily enough. If you'd like me to make a little list of gadgets that I couldn't order from here (2-3 items) for the same reason, just let me know. =)

Hi OneBadwolf,

Due to the heavy weight with the package, we list this item price without shipping, So the shipping fee will be calculated by the package weight. Thank you.
