Cupper
17 January 2015 @ 11:50 pm
This cup has a really pretty design!
I'd like to buy one, but when I went to buy it, it said it's about $60 just to send it and the cup is about $1??? That can't be correct. A $1 cup?

Does anyone have one?

I'm having trouble looking at the website since I'm on mobile and can't figure out how to change the language. If they really are charging $1 for the cup and $60 for shipping I would think that has something to do with taxes and/or customs. Regardless, that seems like a helluva lot of money for a cup! Are you sure it's dollars and not rubles(I think that's what Russian currency is called)?

Yes I translated everything I could and money converted as well from rubles to my country's currency. Something must be wrong with my calculations unless someone wants to try it out themselves?

I've seen knock-off cups as low as £2.12 (that'd be $3.21), which speaks for how cheap it's getting to make cheap cups - I'd be side-eyeing the $60 P&P though.

Yeah I'd never pay that for shipping. Too much when the cup is apparently a $1. ( sure I've made some mistake!). It has a website and everything so shouldn't be that cheap.
I tried the translating and currency converting twice and had the same results.

When I converted it, 800 RUB is $12.25 USD.
It is a pretty cup and ridiculously cheap for a menstrual cup made in Russia. The shipping is outrageous.

I wonder if it's priced that way so that if you want a refund, you only get $1 back and they keep the leftovers from the shipping costs?
