ok so it turns out i had an ultimaker in my cart.....but its still $80 for the cheapest tracking option, and $35 for uninsured with no tracking ( so the postage company could just throw it in the bin and I would never know) why cant ultimaker just use regular post for small parts?

More affordable shipping

We’ve added shipping alternatives and negotiated with DHL to get better rates.

DHL shipping costs are lowered by 20% as of today.

For small parts under 200 grams, there’s a new, very affordable postal method (between € 8.50 euros for NL and € 13.50 Worldwide)!

For parts and PLA up to 2 kg, costs are € 28.50 worldwide, and even lower in europe.

 

Btw, Shipping is HARD. It might sound easy for you. But when you're finding yourself shipping a few hundred shipments a week all over the world, then things change.
