Beware of NewEgg Canada shipping "fees"

NewEgg Canada, as of January 3rd, 2020 has chosen to start gouging their customers on shipping prices if you don't live in a major population center or close enough to one in Canada. For me, they tried to add an additional 80CAD as a shipping "fee." I'm not sure what they're thinking as this will just cause them to loose business to other online retailers.

I would call an anti-gouging place or something like that.

It's their business, they can charge what they want. albeit they will lose business. Arrogance thinking they're the only ones out there and gouge shipping prices. i would go elsewhere.

Nothing unusual. Businesses are there to make a profit and not take a loss, due to shipping costs.
Many stores will charge differently, for out of the way locations.

If it were a 5$ or 10$ increase, I could agree with you. However, an 80$ Increase is unusual.
