Anyone outside the US / Canana know how much to send the CDs? The website doesn't say - and this is even right up to supplying your CC information.....

It's based on the cost of shipping, you give them the credit card number and they take whatever it costs them - which means it is entirely dependent on what you're buying and where you are.

The wonders of computers can usually work this stuff out based on the number of items. Most sites I've bought online provide at the very least a guide to what it should cost, without leaving you in the leech.

I will email them and ask them, charging back whatever it costs isn't good enough because the cost could far outway the cost of the product which I have seen in some cases.

E.g buy a t-shirt on thinkgeek costs $25USD for delivery which isn't worth it for international orders.

It's never much. Six or seven bucks for U.S. The bad part is that you don't know the exact price upfront, which means instead of filling out a P.O. and getting someone to order it, I have to wait until later to be able to expense it back.
