Shippment choice

Post by malti » Sun Jul 04, 2010 9:24 pm

Many big retailers like Digikey, Mouser , Newark etc do not provide a choice of shipment . They force us ( overseas custiomers ) to courier delivery. This is not fair.
I have received many almost weithless components from the States ranging from $2.50 to $12 using US post . Why I should be forced to pay $30 or more dollars ?

You can choose from FedEx, UPS and Air21 for the shipping. You can also check some local shipping companies within your area. But you have to check their background first.
