Re: Discriminatory shipping for Canadians?
THIS is one of the many reasons I love your store

But I do understand people wanting to charge more because they insist on using priority only. That's the only way to insure the package and some are very leery about scammers and not being able to have some sort of protection. kwim? But they need to ship it priority mail if they are going to charge enormous amounts.
I have bought and sold many times on here and I just go with people who will ship without a DC. I have only been scammed once and luckily PP and my CC covered it. I do think it is a bit unfair but I can also understand the fear of the seller being scammed by someone saying the package did not arrive. I have never had a pachage go missing except for one diaper I bought from another Canadian mama but I think she may have scammed me
