@dahamsta: I’m almost sure they displayed the shipping rate on the final order page but here’s the kicker. You’re at the last page after going through the order process; there’s no big cancel button. There might be one below the form, but I usually just click BACK on the browser. They be smart people at Amazon.

I just noticed that shipping on two cables I bought at the same time is only £5.97 before VAT. They came from Amazon in Germany.

Must watch out for this in the future.
