Full Version: Canada Mailing Cost to ship!

Well looks like the rate to ship to Canada for one card in a bubble mailer is $3,10. A dollar and thirty cents more to ship there?

Can we get Delivery Confirmation with that too please! Gee, and I have 4 missing in action packages that have just disappeared, taking up to 2 weeks for them to get there, I love my Canada trades but might stop doing them for the price of shipping and poor service.

Is it customs in Canada holding up the process? Even with customs form that says SPORTS CARDS, gee's!

Sorry for my rant, I say the USA and Canada should at least work together on a DC system! Cheaper to ride my boat to Windsor ON. Go to the PO there and Mail out, lol!

I agree. Sometimes it could take a package weeks to arrive here in Vancouver. It usually just sits at customs for a long time. It's not like I live in a small town either. Oh well, that's where my patience gets a work out. wacko.gif

Not sure if the price increase is due to Canada or due to the USPS. They raised all the other prices, so I would imagine the USPS did these as well. As for customs, it is what it is with today's age of having to worry about terrorists. It does stink though, as does the US to US rate.

They probably keep a huge box around labelled "TCC" on it covered in cobwebs. laugh.gif

The postal workers in Canada have been working without a union contract for over a year now. That's probably leading to the delays at customs and packages going M.I.A.

You don't seem to have very good luck with it Paul (worse than the norm, as I have only had a few go MIA, but yeah they can take 3 weeks or more at times for no apparent reason). Personally I wouldn't ship money TTM anywhere outside of the US (and try to avoid it period), as anything that has to go thru customs it just increases the chance. And there is no economical way to track something, as shipping UPS is expensive and the USPS version is close to $15 I think.
