BFG9000 - why does this website have such ridiculous shipping prices? I live in the UK and I've ordered things from the states tons of times and it's never anything close to the prices this place charges, brb when the pride hoodie was at a discount last time I tried to order and the shipping was more than the actual hoodie, what the fuck is the point if releasing a hoodie at a discount if you're gonna charge me 50 dollars to ship it, it's ridiculous.
50$ for delivery? You're lucky. I bought 2 hoodies for like 60 Canadian. And the final price on it was around 185 Phone Post 3.0

it might have actually been more than 50 since I can't remember the exact amount but I know it was a ludicrous price, you living in canada though is even worse considering it's much closer to the usa yet they still charge ridiculous prices
It's unreal. I was charged by 3 different companies.
Ug store
Ups
Canada customs. Phone Post 3.0

As much as I like the stuff they have for sale in the UG store, the fact that they ship UPS says I will never buy it.

UPS charges the absolute most of any shipper. On top of that they put everything through customs, even if it doesn't need to be. USPS is much better.

So on top of it costing an arm and leg through UPS, they will make Customs bill you, even if it doesn't need to be!

The UG store is NOT Canadian friendly. When you buy from the UG store and live in Canada you WILL pay up to 3 or 4 times the actual cost of the item ON TOP OF the cost of the item. That is if the special "sale price" actually exists.

Bad form UG store...bad form...

ShowtimeWreckedMyLeever - Bought this hoodi a few months ago

Paid shipping through te ug
Had to pay it again at my door
Then customs sent me a bill

2 hoodies cost me almost 200$ Phone Post 3.0

Customs as in the federal government sent you a bill? or UPS sent you a bill for customs?

Yes, it's a serious question. I have a friend who's a loophole master and he's taught me some good tricks.

If it ended up being $150 to bordering Canada, I'd have to assume it's somewhere around $3000 to ship to Australia.

Saw thread title, got excited, went to store to purchase item and it kept going up to $50, thankfully left store to check thread.

After reading these horror stories I'm wondering if anyone outside of the US has had a good experience with UG store? Phone Post 3.0

I was about to order the flash rashguard they had. About 40 bucks. Then shipping was about 40 bucks. Then I saw the shipping was through UPS. When I called customs to see what they would bill me it was about 25 bucks. Ouch.

Customs does have strict rules but you can argue with them about what you should and should not be billed but you need to know the country of origin of the make of the item and also the country of origin of the materials. If you don't know it, they bill you at the top rate they have.

Yea I used to have a Pride shirt. People who had never heard of the fighting organization would look at you funny. And then when the emblem on the front is a fist gripping a phallic symbol it kind of deals your fate Phone Post 3.0

Yeah, if it's the government, you've got to pay them when it's a shipping company, not so much.
