Recently, I ordered (+/- 25 microcontrollers, directly from the freescale ecommerce site; for a total amount of 80 USD (total for silicon - approximatively 60 euros) to Europe.

But, neverthelesss, the additionnals costs were very high :
- 25 usd for the shipping (for less than 100g)
- 13 euros for "brokerage charges" (?) from UPS
- 25 Euros foreuropean VAT

Question : Is it possible to choose another shipping mean (maybe less fast), like USPS economic in order to avoid the huge shipping costs from UPS?
