Canada to USA with tracking?

Anyone know how to ship from Canada to the USA with tracking information? Preferably without spending an arm and leg!

Thanks in advance!

No such luck! if you want tracking you will have to get expedited which costs and arm and a leg!

International shipping does not require dc only the customs number per our rules. Talk to teh post their may be other Options. In Germany I have no dc, but I can pay 2,05 euro to add signiture delivery to prove delivery.

Yes international shipping in here doesn't require dc. But it does require proof of mailing

UPS does tracking if heavy enough otherwise you pay lots.

Re: Canada to USA with tracking?

Oh this is confusing...where are the actual rules laid out? I saw in one of the stickies that it said ALL transactions required DC but that sticky was a bit old. Also doesn't paypal not cover you if the item hasn't been delivered? Sorry if that is confusing with the double negatives...

Re: Canada to USA with tracking?

unfortunately the only way to get tracking is to spend and arm and a leg. US Mamas get a customs number i believe, when they ship to canada, it generally gets scanned at the border but canada post doesnt scan it so it wont update after that

If you ship to canada without tracking and your buyer says they didnt get it, PP will make you refund them, since you cant prove they got the stuff. That being said i think the vast majority of mamas here arent going to scam you, but use your own judgement for any given transaction, if something seems off or if they dont have much feed back you might want to ask them to cover the added cost to get tracking or pass on the transaction all together.

Thanks mamas!

I shipped the package out today and tracking only cost an extra $4 so I slurged. I figured the peace of mind was worth it.

^ This is no longer the case if the US mama purchases the postage via usps.com. They offer delivery confirmation and it tracks to the border then you have to go to Canada Post's website for the rest of the duration.
