    Anyone use Worldmax for their supplies?

    What is up with their shipping rates? They charge crazy rates and when I inquired about it they swore they do not add fees (profit) on the shipping rates.

    I have a dealer account, but by the time I pay their shipping rates I might as well buy it from Drummaker... Anyone have any insight?

    I believe they expect you to buy in massive quantities to make the shipping more affordable.

    Shipping rates have really gone up for UPS and FedEx in recent years.

    Like Eric said, I've noticed shipping rates increasing a lot as well. It used to be girth was the biggest factor, but weight seems to be a determining factor a lot more with smaller packages now. Best deal is USPS flat rate, but box sizes are limited.
