    Hi, I just got an discount email from Oneplus and went to buy and order the power bank + power adapter and the otg cable (22,01 euro) and the shipping cost are 15,70 euro to the Netherlands @_@ I was shocked that the shipping amount is that freaking high! I cancelled my order.

    Can Oneplus setup an European distribution center so the shipping cost wil be much lower?

    No, that wont help. US has a distribution center in Cali, but the shipping is still on the high side

    Just don't buy now, I think they will make it 5,38 again sometime.

    Their shipping is just, unfortunately, high. I'm not sure if they're gouging or just have crap deals to ship with the shipping companies. It's just something that we'll unfortunately have to factor into the price.

    People are desensitized to actual shipping costs with places like Amazon and the like give free or heavily subsidized shipping.

    Thats true. Amazon is losing money on every single Prime 2-day shipping transaction. But they can afford it, OPO cant.

    Yep, picked up a t-shirt and a clear case today and had to pay $7.34 for U.S. standard shipping. Was going to get a OnePlus power adapter too for $5.00 but it listed at regular price $9.99 :confused::( and pushed me into a higher shipping cost of over $14.00 :( so opted only for t-shirt and clear case.

    (@Bradon H - only b/c I don't know who to tag at OnePlus) OnePlus needs to better the shopping experience and make sure that when you offer a sale on your website that the price advertised goes into the purchase order.

    Looking forward to getting my t-shirt (because I could never win one :() and clear case soon :).

    USPS Priority 2 day shipping is $5.70 for a envelope that can hold two OnePlus One phone boxes, yet its $7.34 for a simple power bank? Same thing with the bamboo which is literally a slab of wood.

    For Italy the OTG cable shipping costs 5.38€, while the power bank bundle shipping is 16.89€.
    For 10€-15€ I can ship 5KG packs from Italy to everywhere in the European Union. I doubt the power bank weights 5KG though...

    I don't mind to pay (€6) for shipping, but don't pretent to give a discount and raise the shopping cost. It's not respectfull to your customers Oneplus!

    I love my Oneplus phone and products. And I support and recoment Oneplus to all my friends but this just get me mad. I will not buy anything from Oneplus anymore untill they have a normal rate for shipping.

    Don't forget to add signature confirmation, which is an extra $2.35 on top of the priority mail postage. You also have to add the cost for shipping from China to the US, and however much they pay the third-party warehouse in California to store and distribute their products. It's not just the cost of the USPS postage.

    They have one in the UK. My phone was send from there :), I am waiting for the power bank to become available separately from the power adapter. I also live in The Netherlands :)

    @logan_nl The shipping cost jumps when you add the power bank bundle in your cart. You can still get the OTG cable and other accessories for €5,38 shipping. Maybe it has something to do with the restrictions to ship batteries?? Or they just want to make extra cash? You can wait, or buy similar power bank from Amazon etc

    I waited for 50% discount for the Silver Bullet, then the savings were totally gone with the shipping charge. Anyways, finally got "free" shipping with an "undiscounted" earphone.
