We are only charging you to ship out the samples. Remember, if you like what you see and feel, you can apply the money you used to pay for shipping towards the purcahse of your toy. The price was already determined by the postal service. We told them to ship from Cali to NY. They gave us the total estimates of each sample kit. So if you are out of the states, it can be more. That's a risk we are planning to take! ALL SAMPLES COME WITH A SAMPLE OF ARTIFICIAL SALIVA!
