My 2 cents: Shipping is a difficult thing to assess if you are going to
ship world wide. He needs to have an average price that will also cover
the very expensive (by comparison) costs overseas. If he limits his
sales to the US, then he can ship for less. Quibbling over a few dollars
in shipping costs seems a bit silly to me.
