    Not sure why it’s €17.33 shipping on a set of strings to Canada though. They probably prefer to stick with wholesale business.
    Same shipping costs to USA for three sets (so not quantity dependent). Includes tracking. So I cancelled order over shipping shock. But I may go ahead with order as per set is still competitive with some other premium strings.

    Is it a more or less flat rate for shipping to a given location or does it change depending on number of sets?

    Still a lot for something that fits in an envelope.

    I recently got a €44 ukulele shipped UPS from Europe for €5.99. That seems way too cheap, but who am I to complain? Would expect €5.99 for strings and €17.33 for the uke. Some companies negotiate volume shipping discounts I guess.

    maybe mimmo can organize discounted shipping for 10 count string shipment? I don’t mind ordering 10 in one go..

    At ten packs, the shipping seems reasonable. It is the one or two pack orders where it becomes expensive per set of strings.

    Hi Guys, you are all so kind.

    I have an idea in order to make things easier and less expensive for you: to the first 20 guys that will order these Sugar strings in our on line store (remember: soprano, concert, tenor and baritone only) we will apply only the 30% on the total of the real shipping cost
    This is my way in these damn corona Virus times.

    Please when you place the order mention in the text that Mimmo told you about these conditions

    Please remember that we will not apply these conditions to the customer number 21. Just to the fist 20 guys only.

    I hope that our US distributor will place very soon orders to us.

    Everything is so slow in these times...
