yea I have no idea how the Chinese do it, they practically give stuff away then give you free postage, its quite amazing considering most of the stuff you find, even in bulk the parts should cost more than they give away.

Thing is that large distrubuitors have standard contracts with the couriers. They can't just put it in a padded Bag and take it to a post office.
