I have been searching for a motorcycle part and finally found it in the Netherlands. The part, costing US$100 required a shipping fee of US$60. Obviously, I did not purchase.
Yesterday, at 4 PM (Saturday) I located the part in California for the same price with shipping fee of US$24. While the fee is still high, I do want (and need) the part, so I ordered and paid by PayPal. Within one hour I had confirmation that the product had shipped and that my PayPal account had been credited $14 US for overpayment on shipping.
Well done Ilium Works.
