A Smug Dill posted a topic in Market Watch… at least for orders with Australian delivery addresses. (I haven't been keeping an eye out for or keeping tabs on shipping charges to the UK, Canada, etc.) As recently as last week, there was effectively a ‘flagfall’ of approximately ¥2,400 for each order containing (only) items sold by Amazon.co.jp, onto which (very reasonable) incremental weight-based charges for each item is added. It's hefty, but considering that Amazon Japan ships everything to Australian customers by DHL, that was a hurdle or disincentive when it comes to biting the bullet, but no cause for complaint and not at all indicative of profiteering. (Two weeks ago, I had to return just one new pen to Amazon Japan, which insisted on my using DHL service with insurance for the package contents, and has reimbursed me in full for the shipping charges — which amounted to approximately ¥17,300 for the 0.5kg consignment.) Some time during the past 24 to 48 hours, the ‘flagfall’ seems to have been reduced to approximately ¥1,700 per order. Of course, that had to come just after I placed an order on Saturday (and was too late to cancel and place anew, not that I would risk the discounted item price I secured anyway). Looking at the expected delivery dates on in-stock items, it does not appear the reduction is on account of any change in shipping method Amazon.co.jp may elect to use.

From the album: First lookAll of these were delivered by DHL to my doorstep in Australia, less than seven days after placement and payment of their respective orders, which — including other items not shown here — were individually eligible for (this grade of) free shipping. Well done, Cult Pens! 👍
