Seeed studio is one of those outfits that 'loves' to deal with DHL.
Here I find DHL to love tacking on extra fees - - - mostly because they
can - - - - just to get packages delivered. Then there is their insistence
on my sending my financial information to their http (note - - -insecure)
website - - - - so it is sorta easy to see why I find outfits that
'force' the use of DHL
to be reprehensible.

What's interesting is that Seeed is cheaper than AliE.
That also means that this is single source material. More looking to do!

Thanking you for your ideas and suggestions.
