Atoms is currently subsidizing the international shipping costs with our flat rate shipping options. We chose those because of the balance among cost, speed, and reliability but we understand others may be OK with other trade offs.
If you would like to try an alternative shipping option, you could check out our friends at Ship To. They specialize in international shipping and offer consolidated shipping options which are generally cheaper than ours but we cannot guarantee the reliability of the service once it is delivered to your Ship To address.
Any questions about your order after they ship it should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
