I didn't really know where to really address this but I just wanted to say shipping on CR products is way too expensive to ship outside the US from what I understand. Even living in Canada the shipping for an AoT poster that cost 14$ cost 22$ to ship, almost tripling the costs . I wish they could find cheaper ways to ship these products to us and make use of my premium account discounts in the CR store.

I understand you, it's expensive for international users, for every article no matter how light or small they add extra shipping cost, but it's worst in my case since I have almost every article unavailable for my region, even CR own products, I don't get daily deals either or any of CR promotions(like the backpacks, or mistery manga boxes or anime), I can only buy certain manga, comics, or figures I'm not interested, time before I was able to purchase anything but I don't know why CR put so many restrictions at least for Mexico I'm not sure about other places, it was a good place to buy but sadly not anymore

my store and cart looks like this:

Wow didn't know they restricted most of the things internationally, aside from Canada. I guess they want us to go to the anime expos and buy their stuff there.

Still not as expensive as Amazon shipping. Want to buy something for $12? Pay $40 for shipping. It's also why games are so damn expensive in Australia. Their retail price is $50 in the US but due to the shipping costs we get charged $80-90 for the same game. I'm pretty certain there is a security screening surcharge of $20 for mail in the US, and also a lot of people use GSP to ship mail which ultimately increases the shipping price making it way more expensive than other postage methods would.

Yeah my guess is cause australia is overseas that global mail is that expensive to ship. Also the tax or whatever you have there that makes your hourly wages so high compensate for the high prices you guys have to pay for games, dvds what have you. I'm in Canada a bus ride away anywhere in america, and the shipping charges arent that much on amazon.ca or .com but skyrocket to 20$+ for any item on the store.

There's a cheaper way, but it would take longer to ship. Unfortunately, Crunchyroll only does priority mail (correct me if I'm wrong) and I guess that's what makes it expensive(?)

It's not as bad, but I'm in the US and i still have to pay $5 for shipping if i want a tiny ass keychain that costs less than the shipping itself.
