The shipping prices displayed at checkout are the rates pulled from the different carriers and service options based on the shipping address that was input and the item(s) in the order. We are unable to offer cheaper rates than what is shown at checkout.
Our deskpads are approximately 400mm x 900mm and weigh around 2 lbs when packed individually.
For domestic shipping, First Class shipping rates only go up to 15.9 oz, so these mats must be shipped Priority. Carrier rates increase at different thresholds based on package weight and dimension.
For international shipping, it is not uncommon for the price to ship to be more expensive than the cost of the item itself.
