I guess the shipping difference is courier vs airmail. Distributors set their own prices, and UK doesn’t have Trump’s idiotic 25% China tax (idiotic because as you found out, it is the end consumer that pays, not China).
Are you in Australia? Seems to make more sense for me to send from HK (closer). Send me an email with what you need.

And I get 2 antennas I don't need and a SIM I can't use as well as the GSM module that I was going to either transfer over or get an in-car wifi solution.
