Hard lesson learned, sucks pretty bad. I would have emailed them saying it's extra to ship to hongkong and waited for more payment.

If you mail it 7 grams at a time you can send it in a normal envelope pretty cheap... and without customs inspection too That wouldn't have worked for Rican unfortunately, but man did it make my life a bit better while in DE.

Just think about it, it is not like it can go UPS/Fed Ex GROUND to Hong Kong. I think most shippers look at that as air freight, unless USPS puts it on the slow boat.

The reason it takes 2 weeks to foreign countries, the package still has to go through customs in those countries.
