Indie shops with cheap/free international shipping

One of the primary hurdles people encounter when getting into indies is the shipping cost in my opinion, especially for those that live outside of the US. So I decided to compile a small list of shops that ship for free internationally, at low cost(under $10) or ship for free with a (~$35)minimum spent, because who wants to spend $50+ just to get free shipping in a new shop. If this article is interesting and attracts suite a few readers, I’ll make additional installments.
