Free shipping in Canada?

Does anyone know of any stores here in Canada that offer free shipping?

Yah, I looked but I thought they were all US stores with the exception of one? I'm looking for ONLY Canadian stores.

I know of lots of free shipping in Canada over $99 and some over $49 but other than that in my searches I've found http://www.ottawaclothdiapers.com is $6.95 for anything up to $99.

Re: Free shipping in Canada?

This is such a difficult thing to do in Canada, which is why you see mostly US stores in the list. Shipping in the US is much cheaper (for small/light items) than Canada. When the order is larger or if you are working with a large company, you can offer free shipping without taking a huge loss, but when you are a WAHM and the order is small, it is really difficult to fairly price items and offer free shipping
I feel horrible about the shipping rates and though it is not my fault, I am always taking a hit on shipping.
Example of a recent small order: to ship a fitted diaper and fleece soaker (larges) from Alberta to Nova Scotia costs about $14. My retail on the fitted is $22 and the embellished soaker is $16 - as I package I sold for $35. (- $3) For shipping I charged $5. (-$9) My total loss in the sale was $12 or 34%. If I was in the US, I could probably ship that package clear across the country for about $4! So I could offer about 20% off and free shipping and come out with the same about of $$ art the end of the day.

I know the buyer wants to get the best deal and I love when buyers want to shop local and look for the best deal while shopping Canadian. The shipping rates are ridiculous and it is not the sellers fault either - yet we often feel responsible and take the hit...

sorry for the rant! Canada Post stinks!

Canada post sucks for us WAHMs!

I have free shipping over $150 or if the items are small, I can ship for $2 letter mail. (this doesn't include insurance or a tracking # though)
