Only one shipping option offered - $46!

I am experiencing difficulty placing a small order under 100 grams with HobbyKing.
Previously, I was offered several shipping options and I would choose one that is, or was, $5.99 for less than 100 grams.
Now when I try to place my order and go through to the payment stage, all I am quoted is one shipping cost for $46. I cannot see what, if anything, I am doing wrong.
It is something I am doing wrong? Or is there a temporary fault with the website?
Anyone know?

Is it a battery? Batteries have limited shipping options depending on the countries involved

No. Just a couple of adhesives. Foam safe CA and CA gel.

There's been no notifications about this, but it seems that ANYTHING liquid is now restricted in the shipping methods that can be used, and that's even affecting things that are not "nasty", like threadlock.

It's probably going to be cheaper and quicker to get these sorts of items from the LHS, or a DIY store, though foam safe CA may be a problem depending on your local suppliers.

Irish Steve,another option would be to get them from your local Hobbyking warehouse,then it will still be cheaper than your LHS.

Yes that is the way. However, they do not stock everything that the Hong Kong warehouse does. At least, our Aus store does not.
