One more time regarding shipping charge

I know nobody likes paying for high shipping, but we've been charging for honest shipping, well, lower than actual shipping since day one.

let's do the math! 

here is EMS official price list in RMB  http://www.ems.com.cn/serviceguide/e-zi-fei-biao-zhun.html
Zone Destination of EMS First 500g Additional 500g Destination of China Express

Canada, U.S.A 180 240 75 Canada, U.S.A

current EMS contractor rate to us, 44% off. so we pay 56% of the listing price.
current USD-RMB exchange rate  1 USD = 6.59RMB

An average package is 2kg. So 240 RMB for the first 0.5KG. 75 RMB for each additional .

240 + 75 +75 +75 =465 RMB

we pay 56% of the listing price,  465 * 56% = 260.40 RMB

convert that to USD   260.40/ 6.59 = $39.5144.

our current rate charged on fabulousaaa.com is $37 for an average 2kg package. considering i have to pay merchant account / credit card processing fee to process this payment , and all the other potential cost , I am really taking a loss here.

This is the post for everyone that has sent me or was about to send me angry emails regarding the "outrageous" shipping charges.   I would change this if i have a choice, but i dont.... :((

still love you all~ lol.
