    Help dumb foreigner ballpark shipping cost :)

    I need to ship a magazine, but for the life of me I can't figure out what it will cost to ship out each order. I've been trying a lot of the calculators available, but they seem to give me prices of minimum $6-7 - for a regular sized magazine shipping domestic in the US. That can't possibly be true?

    I tried to look up some magazines on other sites like for example Etsy just as a regular customer - and for a magazine located in the US and shipping to the US I get many sellers who ship for $2-3 which is what I think is what I concluded it would be the approximate cost the first time I researched this a while ago.

    Can anyone give some pointers? Who should I use? And can I ballpark a price somehow? If I know it's just around $3 for example, give or take than it would be fine. If that's not possible, it would be cheaper to send the magazines from Europe to customers in the US!

    PS I'm from Denmark (but most of my audience is in the US) so everything related to the US postal system is new to me.

    Thanks for those.

    The Paypal link just takes me to my account though. I can't see that Paypal offers any kind of fulfillment option. Could you clarify?
