I selected some small parts on the year end sale that looked like a good deal. They’re small, maybe a few ounces worth, and the order total was $6.65
Now I need to ship them, and the cheapest you can do is UPS for $13??
Ouch. I’m sure you could stick these in a bubble envelope (your cost ~= $1) and ship it USPS for a few dollars.
Sparkfun is not selling auto-body parts or lawn care equipment. You’re selling electronic parts, and most of them are tiny and light.
Why is it you’re charging $13 to send a few small parts from Colorado to California, and the dudes on Ebay can ship a circuit board to me from China for $3. This makes no sense.
