The shipping costs on my amazon order have decreased, from 26USD to 6USD. 

 

Looks like Amazon are back in business for me.

Yes seems to be a reasonable price again, nice spotting. Get in quick in case they change it back.

Just ordered a bunch of Monoprice certified HDMI cables after being sick of dicking around with some local ones that keep blacking out.

 

I don't how bad it was, but I paid $16USD for normal shipping for 5 cables.

Shipping was obscene for some items, but has now gone back to almost Pre-COVID pricing. 

 

Quite something.

I've been checking weekly to see if standard shipping was an option yet, and glad to see it now is.

billgates:

Deutsche Post, which includes all of its affiliated organisations like DHL, have suspended post to NZ. They'll still deliver stuff to Pitcairn Island, where you need to row across in a dinghy to drop it off, but not to NZ because apparently the target country (NZ) has no functioning postal system.

 

 

OK, arguably with CourierPost to non-business addresses that might be a valid claim :-), but it's still completely nuts.
