Shipping prices gone mad

I have been absolutely shocked by some of the shipping prices quoted to me for sending products to the UK.

I have often sold internationally and know that the prices I am being quoted are a total rip-off, often costing more than the actual product itself. Why on earth do the suppliers do this? They must lose an enormous amount of customer through doing so. I tend to keep an eye out for suppliers offering free shipping it really helps to keep my profit margins healthy.

Any thoughts?

Shipping to most international ports has come to be a pain in the rear completely. I used FedEx and they will literally charge me $200.00 to ship a 1 couple pound item to great britain. Its a total joke and basically caused by the cost of fuels. The only service for me that has not gone up is the USPS rates.

If you are selling items under a hundred dollars, ship it 1st class. Ive done that and have never had a problem.
Over a hundred ship it priority. And if its a real high priced item, ship it with sig required and express mail.
