Why is shipping so high?
Shipping is calculated (by weight and ship to location) by eCRATER using US Postal Service current rate chart. The shipping fee charged to buyers is the actual amount charged to us by the USPS. We have no control as to the shipping rates charged by the US Postal Service. There are no handling or additional fees added. All orders are processed and shipped from our NY location.
FYI- The Post Office charges by weight, rounding up to to next pound, and by distance. The further away the more expensive shipping will be.
