Re: I just need to vent about Canadian Shipping

The reason I have been told is that we just don't have the same volume of people/packages as the US. Still doesn't make me feel better. I often find shipping cheaper with greyhound or DHS

And given how low you have to price the diapers in order to sell them it really hurts. You have to really really want to sell for it to be worth it.

Yup. It sucks. Between the ridiculous cost of shipping and the vast number of sellers here who won't sell to Canadians, it's pretty discouraging. I'm trying to meet up with more ocal CDing moms and sell locally instead.

On the flip side, with the difference in the dollar it's a great time to sell. I spold something for $65 US and it was over $73 CDN to me. Handy. Not so great if you're buying though.

When I asked at the PO a LONG time ago she said that "they" (no idea who "they" are) have some sort of deal.
