Hi

I was just about to buy a book off Amazon (very rear book) but the postage was $20. Is there any way to get a book from them without paying this sort of priced..

Thx..

Books should be USD$4.99 per order and USD$4.99 per item (i.e. an order of one book would be USD$9.98 shipping). Is it actually coming from Amazon or third party seller?

I'd be interested to hear but I don't think you'll have any luck.

Postage sounds too much... even a rare book dosent weigh anymore.... unless theyre putting insurance etc on it for you.

Alot of bookdepository books can be bought through Amazon. Try Amazon.co.uk as well as amazon.com. Sometimes Amazon.co.uk gives us free postage.
