I have been buying a number of CDs and DVDs from Amazon.co.uk and the 
postage for a single one is GBP1.26. This is regardless of whether the 
supplier is in the UK or USA. However, when I try to purchase from 
Amazon.com, the postage jumps to GBP8.00+ from the same suppliers. Are 
US Amazon creaming off some of the postage for themselves? Additionally, 
some items from the latter aren't allowed to be sent to the UK, although 
some of them can be purchased from via UK Amazon from the same US suppliers!
