Shipping costs are way too high for cubic rate.

I just shipped something to zone 6 that fits in the smallest size for cubic rate yet it costs $9.99 in shipping from Shopify. Shopify claims I saved $1.76 by buying the shipping from them, yet when I ship the same thing on Amazon it's about $7.50. I checked around and other shipping services are about $8.00. What is going on?

Did you ever get an answer from shopify?  Their help documentation says they do cubic:

But I don't even see cubic as an option (I have a standard shopify account without any special plug ins or extras).  This is a serious negative for shopify, I also sell on Amazon and see lower shipping rates with Amazon/cubic that aren't available in Shopify for the same exact product and box size.   I hope they fix this issue soon.  Is there a way to petition this company?  I read in another thread you have to sign up for some special shipping service that costs extra.  That is really aggravating if true, Amazon doesn't charge more for access to cubic shipping rate, and I don't understand why it would cost shopify more to offer cubic shipping rate?
