    I want to ask this question because if I dont find a answer, Ill have to stop using international sellers, because shipping costs way to much.

    I bought 10 pcs of perfume for about 70 dollars, shipping costed 90! It weighed about 6 lbs and was from Singapore to USA, the perfume only sells for around 40-45 dollars sometimes a little more, how the hell can I make much profit if shipping costs so much...

    Shipping doesn't really cost that much, especially from Singapore. Someone is profiting off of shipping.

    10 items , $70 + 90 shipping = $160 then u say $40-45 = $400 - 450 that is a min of $240 over the 10 items.

    why do u say there is there no profit ????

    Hmm the prices seem right, but I am wondering why the package weighed 6 lbs, I didn't think 10 pcs of Perfumes would weight that much, I guess ill find out when it gets here.

    I guess its not bad, its just risky with customs shipping and all.

    And dont forget the $5 for shipping the package.
