    Amazon France No Cheap International Shipping Anymore

    No more standard shipping to Singapore, only the much more expensive express shipping, which significantly reduce the amount of savings.

    I'm still getting the cheap shipping option. Livraison (Shipping) is only EUR 7,82.

    That order is for Canada, not Europe. If I was from Europe, I would get free shipping already. :lol:

    Just two days ago, Amazon France is still offering a choice of normal or express shipping to Singapore. Now they only offers Express Shipping which is more than 3 times the normal shipping rate and make the discount unworthy. Is it the same situation for other countries?

    I checked it from Malaysia and it's the same deal here, only got the Flash Shipping option. Does anyone know what is up?

    I think they want to make sure that the orders arrive before Christmas.

    btw Queen Anne's is gone at that price.

    I try to order from Hong Kong. No more cheaper shipping can choose. Only the express can use :(
    I think the policy had changed. Now the cheapest shipping cost is Italy. €20 for express shipping a order. But all item price are increase in this few days.

    Spain most items not ship to oversea now.

    I'm really suprised that they didn't exclude Canada. If one lives in Western Canada, thats almost the same distance as countries like Hong Kong and Singapore.

    Maybe its just the holiday thing like retr0baD mentioned and Amazon just wants it delievered prior to Christmas.

    I don't think Spain/Germany really shipped items overseas before. Italy and US sites ships select items. For the US site, you get cheap shipping if your international, but not for Canada as you only get the express one. :(

    I shipped 2 GEs, battle of endor and a lot of smaller sets from Spain in early Nov. But seems like they are excluding legos and certain brands of toys from being shipped to Singapore recently.

    The free shipping option on orders above 15 Euros from Amazon.fr is only available if delivery will be to a french address. At least to Germany I have to pay shipping fees.

    I thought they were offering free shipping like the Amazon UK site (Free shipping to UK with no minimum, Free shipping to Europe with €25) too but looks like I'm wrong. Thank you.

    Sorry to hear that and ya, their prices are also usually a lot higher because the pound is worth more.

    But its good to know you can still order from Amazon France. France pretty much has the cheapest prices out of all the other Amazon European sites. :)
