When I saw those huge dollar figures, I suspected that the prices were actually denominated in Argentinian pesos, but that the dollar symbol $ was just "carried over" from 'our side,' so to speak. The actual dollar prices that you computed using the dollar/peso exchange rate sound eminently reasonable (the shipping charges, however, may not be...).
