Flaming shops that make you email them to get shipping prices.

Does anyone know (seeing as they take a flaming week to get back to ya) how much 999central charge for two DVD's to Australia?

Thanks.

Not a clue what they charge. I would never order from a company that doesnt give you a final total price (including shipping) before a final confirmation page..

Yeah, I usually skip shops that don't offer immediate shipping or final price info.

If they can't get their act together enough to be able to provide that, how am I to believe they are responsible enough to use my credit card number correctly or calculate shipping properly?

The only exception is when I've ordered some odd items online. Understandably, there was no way to calculate an automatic price, as there were special shipping considerations. But, I didn't have to email them, or do anything else. All I had to do was place the order, then they got back to me with final shipping price for me to OK the order and give them my payment info at that time.

Yeah, I understand and that's a fair call Renaldow about odd items.

But when it comes to just wanting to buy a few DVD's, the shipping should be sorted out.

Oh, well. Plenty of other shops online.

And now I just checked Movie Doctor. And when you go to checkout, it says they'll email you with the shipping rated.

UNBELIEVABLE!

He doesn't mean he flamed them, he's using flaming instead of the other f word that americans would normally use.

I usually skip shops that don't list international shipping prices clearly. If you only want US customers, that's fine by me.

MAD as HELL!

When I worked and lived in Germany for the U.S. Army, I had an U.S. zip code, but many of these online stores still would not ship to me! Sometimes, it is just plain hard to spend your money. I solved the problem by moving back to the U.S. Fhrx...you're always welcome to move to Wisconsin, USA! It is currently snowing here and the temperature is 9 degrees Fahrenheit!
