so i recently ordered some parts for the $50 robot from Digikey.com - i was satisfied with the price. There were too many shipping options and i didn't know which one was the cheapest so i contacted their staff and asked them for their CHEAPEST shipping option. ( i may seem cheap...but i work only two 5 hour shifts per week at $8.75/h...i don't have much spare cash). So they gave me their cheapest option, i said OK, and a week later i see a note on my door regarding the order.
it says my package arrived, but no one was home to pick it up. after closer inspection, it turns out the brokerage fee for the shipping came to a MASSIVE
something must be wrong here? The $50 robot was designed to be, well ~$50. I'm guessing Admin chose Digikey.com as a website for the parts because you could get them cheap, with cheap shipping aswell...??
I'm just wondering if anyone else received a surprising shipping bill, or something just didn't go as planned with my order.?
If you ordered from Digi-key.com - how much did you have to pay for shipping?
