What happens if I select ship entire order but Amazon still ships separetely and then I cancel remainding order? Do they charge 6+1.95*x for first shipment and 1.95*y for rest like Reel did or (total shipping/x*y)*x and (total shipping/x*y)*y ?

I wish someone will understand my formulas

amazon, like most etailers, front loads the shipping cost.

I believe they are 2.99 + .99 each additional item. They will tack the 2.99 on to the first item out... If it's your last one, there should only be .99 of shipping left..(or .99 per remaining item).

I just realized the first item + additional item numbers for you will be higher because of your location.

They do NOT increase the cost to you, if you say to ship all at once and they choose to do otherwise.

Yeah, be warned tho, some retailers go against this, and do sketchy things with the s/h on partially cancelled orders

Okay thanks guys. I just received shipping confirmation for first disks, they really shipped separately for overseas customers too. They are going to charge per shipment charge for the first one, I hope they'll ship next one charging only per item charge.

So should I cancel the remainding disks I have paid some extra for the first disks

Maybe you should try reading the help pages before flipping out. I found them helpful.
