This seems to happen more with packages in Newgistics care much more than most other shipping services.

    The problem is going to be if Digital River estimates their weights when they pay for actual postage. If they aren't getting an accurate weight for the packages, but just assigning a weight based on the contents, then they may actually be overpaying for shipping. So even if they did overcharge us, they wouldn't have pocketed the difference but paid it forward to the postal carrier (USPS, UPS, etc.).

    I haven't gotten mine either yet. Does your notice usually take a while?

    I highly doubt it. In the best scenario they may give us a coupon or something. They keep messing. I still wonder what happened to those who have ordered CG with the $218 shipping quote or the ones that have ordered the CG with the 10% for orders above $100 during Thanks Giving week

    Yeah, I got charged $16 for shipping when last month I paid $15 for shipping. Last month was Ram-Man, Phantom Stranger, and Jitsu. I can understand why shipping was $15. However, this month, it is King He-Man, Fang Man, air, and Elongated Man, there is no reason it should be that high. It should only be $12-13 at most. I'm getting really sick of these additional fees that are cropping up without any warning. Yes, it is only a couple of dollars, but that adds up over a year's time.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I don't see any anger in this thread, I just see people upset. Since when are people not allowed to be upset because they are getting charged more than they should?

    I sent Mattycollector CS a message and asked them to fix this issue and refund me the postal fees that were incorrectly charged. I also asked for a receipt for the returned money so that I do not have to pay extra taxes for the incorrect prize on the invoice. I'll let you know how they respond.

    First of all, it is a joke!
    i'm not referring to this event only, but to all mistakes we have trough all these years of collecting the line, I was overcharged too and I'm upset to but I tried to put this in another form.

Now I realize this is only $1.05 more for me this month, but considering there is no way those maps and King He-Man make up the same weight total as Ram Man did last month. Yet, I am still getting charged MORE? Garbage like this that ****** people off.

    i think my shipping to NY was $14.xx

    i guess it's not bad for cross country for 2 figures.


    aren't we supposed to get the mini comic also????

    I haven't received mine either, but on the good side (knock on wood) it looks like my shipping is the same as last month
    Actually, it seems to be $1 higher, but I'm not going to worry about that--enough problems in my life in general (esp right now) than to sweat one dollar

    I'm going to do the same... If I have to pay extra custom fees for their mistake I will be very upset... I had to pay 30€ in customs just because of the free figure from Frosta's Forearm Fiasco (and all I got was a damaged MerMan) so my "upset-meter" is about to explode .

    I know. You subbers better be careful when you ask for more faction stickers. They might wind up costing you an arm and a leg.

    Was TG blowing off the complaints early on when he claimed they had no control over shipping when they actually did?

    It's situations just like this one that make people dislike the job TG is doing.
    He was probably right. They don't have any control over what it costs to ship something. What they DO have control over is what they input the weights and measurements of products as that are used to calculate shipping. They screwed up on that so that is why there are price differences this month. However, they also charge a handling fee, etc which is why some people here can ship something cheaper than DR. They aren't charging themselves for the time it takes to ship something nor the extra materials to ship it which is fine. Myself? My Time is money and I would charge myself a lot to ship something lol

    nah they would only charge us 9.99 since it is a mini comic and not a full size comic...SAVINGS!!!! lol

    Got both the funds 'ping' and the email confirming my order (but no shipping notice yet). And I agree s/h this month is insanity! I'd say it's not the cost per figure that will kill this line... it's the shipping!!
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!
