LTT Store - Expensive Shipping

Recommended Posts

As I already mentioned, small package option with Canada post has no tracking or coverage. And I do agree it's too expensive as it currently stands, but there's realistically no option for them to ship this internationally (with tracking and coverage) for under $15.

Why not offer shipping options with and without tracking?

In my experience tracking is essentially useless for the customer anyway, especially with international orders. It shows "Has been received by shipping company", then 3 weeks later "Has arrived at your local depot", then next day "On board with courier driver for delivery".

Decided to check the shipping rates from Store.Gamersnexus.net to Australia.

International Plus (Tracking Until Delivery)
$12.99

$13 USD for shipping (with full tracking) to Australia (Not including local taxes and import duties). That's $51 USD cheaper than shipping from LTTstore.com.

Unless I'm mistaken, they're based in the US, not in Canada.

 

Prices in Canada for anything and everything tends to be higher than in the US, that includes shipping.

I'm willing to accept that things in Canada cost more than in US, but 500% more expensive? $13 USD shipping vs $64 USD shipping? If there is such a drastic price difference between US & Canada then LTT should look in to using a US supplier to fulfil the merch orders for them.

As one that has complained for decades about this I actually find it amusing that it's news to the rest of the world 😛

 

yes, it's annoying, but it's the sad reality of the Canadian market. Even when our $ was at par with the USD, everything was costing more, some items were as much as double the price.

 

Also, Canada Post prices are ridiculously expensive, I remember reading that some Canadian companies near the US border will actually "export" their shipment to the US (they send an employee with a truck full of shipment) and ship from the US, back to Canada ... And despite all the costs involved and logistics involved, they save a lot of money!

 

So because of that, my guess is that 3rd party shipping company don't have to advertise USA level pricing to be competitive within the Canadian market.

 

BTW, this is something I'm all too familiar with since I had an eBay store more than a decade ago and had to deal with that problem myself.

Then give the option to ship without tracking.
Or @LinusTech can send me a bunch of shirts and I ship them from the US for them for $14 shipping that includes tracking with usps. I ship orders internationally all the time with my etsy business.

 

Heck, I even know someone who lives in Canada and just drives to the nearest usps store across the border once a week to drop off international shipments.

Two shirts and two packs of ties... wasn't unreasonable to the midwest US. I think being in Cannuckistan and using UPS hurts, shame there's no US based outlet for them. But it wouldn't be LTT if we didn't have an avenue to complain aboooot something between the US and CA!

I could ship a t-shirt to Canada for £11.15 with tracking (excluding customs fees). That's 19.30 CAD.

I still can't figure out why it's so expensive. I'm actually cringing from thinking about $64 shipping for a damn shirt.

Why can't this stuff just be sent from the US?

$8.74 is pretty good. It's only when shipping to Europe, Australia/NZ and Asia that shipping costs become an issue because of import charges and air mail prices.

There is a shipping forwarder in the US called Shipito. They collect a fee of $2 US + shipping fee (from $15 US to Germany). That's still about $25 ($8 to US, $17 US to Germany (that's where I live in, but other European countries are similar)) not including taxes, but that's way cheaper than the $50 US charged when shipping directly.

Welcome to Canada

If FedEx ships it, you will be paying even more!

 

Smart idea, drop shipping merch from the US to the US would be a smart move, all depends on how they want to do it and make a profit, thats what business is all about, profit.

Why not produce the merch in another country that has much more reasonable shipping costs globally?

I am sure the garments are produced by child labor in a 3rd world country, then the items are dropped off to be printed somewhere in the USA from a company that does that sort of thing. Could probably have a small company in Vancouver do up limited quantities for all the Canucks, then the margins would be different. Not much of a good deal with the time involved.

Sure if you want it to take a month to get to you maybe xD

Where I'm from (Israel), a month is perfectly legit. I'd wait even three if it means free shipping. Or pay 10 dollars to get it in a month.

 

Shipping here from ltt costs 78$, because it's the priority express VIP make America great again solid gold rate. I can go for something less XE.  (Xtreme edition)

Because the local post services are forced to handle it outside of China. Luke and Linus talked about it on the wan show back when prime increased to 100$

You guys know there are alternatives for international shipping? Its not only Canada Post and UPS right? UPS outside of the Americas is quite expensive and quite slow. In Europe I'd prefer DHL. I see that it costs 13 euro's to probably ship a t-shirt and 24 if I do like 5 or so. And there's probably more transporters (with tracking) that you could check out. I think it would be wise to do so, especially for Europe.

 

And perhaps it would be better to have a broker in Europe to ship there as I can imagine more European fans want the shirt(s). As far as I can see every shirt costs 50 bucks to ship to the Netherlands, so I don't think it will be something I will be doing any time soon.
