    Default Alpha-Bill Ray WU

    Well I think it is time for Ray Wu to be called out for what he is . Ridiculous Ray

    This is just a Prime example of how his store has been ripping off the general unsuspecting purchaser.
    Unless you are a seasoned purchaser through Aliexpress and not versed in the messaging format to get possibly better shipping prices , you are literally taken to the cleaners .

    He has become a shipping bandit for even posting nonsense ads like this .

    Which are you trying to amplify? The cost of the LEDs ($14 for 100), or the shipping ($16)?
    Many of us know to email Ray directly for a better quote on shipping. Never take the automatic shipping cost shown on AliExpress.

    I won't be entertaining the Ridiculous going forward . He is not the only game in town when it comes to purchases for this hobby .

    I guess I'm confused - Looking at a few other small-ish items on Ray's store, it looks like the $16 shipping is the minimum price for the FedEx IE service. While that does seem high relative to the cost/size of the item, it is sending something halfway around the world

    I do agree that there a quite a few other options and that it's a good thing for everyone!

    I will clear up your confusion .
    I purchased double the amount from a different vendor @ 20$ for 200 leds and the shipping was 3$ . Received the parcel in 9 days . No secret handshakes required and my location did not change .
