Shipping charges differed by a bit between BrickOwl and Bricklink. When I asked they stated laziness at updating the Bricklink prices in light of the upcoming USPS changes. I could have rebuilt my cart at Bricklink to save a little in shipping. Instead I reduced a few items from my cart until I got back down to the lowest shipping amount and called it good. Prices are reasonable, selection is reasonable, service is reasonable, shipping is excessive. Sure, maybe I'll try again for some other items but only if I can get the shipping to be within 15% of the order value.
