I used to buy lots of parts from RS Components but they now charge $37.- for delivering a small part from Sydney to Perth.
I can get a similar part delivered from Digikey in the States for $24.-

I guess I'm getting ripped off by RS, and they have no cheaper delivery options either, as some Asian suppliers have. So, my orders from RS will cease unless the required part cannot be sourced elsewhere and I'm desperate for it .

Too bad it has come to that, RS used to be a good place to buy from, especially when they were located in Perth and I just went to the trade counter.
