Pricing differs by country and some have many differently priced shipping zones. The main example with 9 zones is Russia, see this page for a detailed listing of shipping zones in Russia.
Following is a discussion of shipping options by country:
Ukraine is divided costwise in Central/East and West zones. Both sea (4-6 or 4-5 weeks) and air (1˝ -2 or 1-1˝ weeks) shipping are supported by our cart.
Russia is a vast country with 9 shipping zones. Both sea and air shipment are supported by the forwarder. But the price advantage of sea shipment is rather small, maybe owing to the significant distances to be covered. And the delivery time increases to between 8-10 weeks. We don’t think many of our potential customers want to wait that long. Consequently our cart supports air only at this time. For a quote on sea shipment just put into the ‘Special Instructions’ field SEA SHIPMENT and we will send you a quote.
