I live in Australia, and I buy gadgets. EDC stuff. The kind of stuff that small US manufacturers are really good at. Today I went to buy some belt clips from a US supplier. The clips cost less than $2 US each, but the cheapest postage option was over $28. This happens a lot, so I decided to check out the USPS website. I can only assume the supplier in question was subsidizing the postage, or I missed some major section of the website, because the CHEAPEST price I could find to ship anything other than a flat envelope was over $36 US. That's insane. And if true, it is hurting American businesses. I can buy 5 similar clips on eBay for less than HALF the cost of ONE shipped from that US business. They are probably not as good, and I can't get reliable specs and all that, but come on! I can't burn $30-$40 US every time I need to buy a plastic widget. And this isn't about 'oh but China subsidizes their postage costs'. I can send a parcel weighing half a kilogram - that's OVER A POUND - from Australia to the US for $17 AU. That's about 12 of your dollars. Or, if it was something like a belt clip weighing a few grams, I could probably sneak it in a padded envelope and send it for $3 Australian - that's $2.14 US. As much as it frustrates me to not be able to buy from US businesses, it should have you guys rallying in the streets because more than 95% of the world's population does not live 'CONUS', and your awesome businesses can't sell them stuff because of this insane barrier.
