Yes, but we write quantities with a decimal point. It is appropriate for us to write 5.00 Euros.
All in all, that is pretty cheap postage (A$8+), for some reason postage out of Europe is usually very expensive whereas it is not unusual to pay as little as a couple of dollars for postage from the US.
Postage can make or break the deals.
For example, I ordered 50 diodes from an Australian kits supplier at $0.20 ea + $7 postage. The supplier told me he only had 100 diodes, so would only sell me 20, so that would come to $0.55/diode. I bought 200 on Ebay from the US at $US16 +US$1.85 post, that was $0.025/diode. I hardly ever buy small parts, and never buy large parts from Europe as their postage is usually very expensive.
