Put a Harmony Hub in my shopping cart US$89  - it's free US shipping with Amazon Prime plus say NZ$20 for YouShop. But I checked the Amazon estimator for NZ shipping - US$7.71 delivery Aug 24.

 

That is good value shipping.

 

 [edit: correction - new, not refurbished, $89, not $99. Mondays...]

I noticed a similar price drop. I went to order an item a week ago and the shipping price was US$9.98, for quite a bulky item. This is down from US$25 a few months back.

I noticed the other week when I bought a  Tablet cover from Amazon and they allowed shipping to NZ.  The cover was US$ 13 and the shipping $6.49.  Way cheaper than YouShop would have been.

I was thinking the opposite, some items that used to cost $8USD to ship, have now jumped to around $14usd. 

 

But, maybe some shipping costs went up, some down.

I've noticed that in the last few months items that used to be don't-even-think-about-it to ship are now around the $10 mark, to the point where I've ordered a few things direct rather than waiting for my next trip to the US to pick them up. There certainly seems to have been some change in shipping in the last few months.

I noticed this too and ordered something, but it never arrived, and was returned to them. According to them it didn't even leave the US, so I wonder if the pricing is right?

First thing that come to mind for me too. Unless they are lowering it to soften the blow when it drops once their distro is up and running.

Not started shipping yet. They are just about to hire staff for their Melbourne DC and are yet to acquire/announce the location of a Sydney DC.
