I spoke to USPS today...they say the package indeed reached Canada and they are now requesting it to be re-routed to China. Strange thing is that when I used the 800# automated tracking service it says that packet is in China. Online it indicates it is in Canada. The customer service reps also believe it is in Canada. Lord knows who is right!!

Need some Canadian advice.

I'm working with a new buyer shipping from Toronto --> California for a pair of jeans.

Any advice on avoiding custom fees?

What are the best Canadian shipping options? (my priorties are cost, reliability and avoiding customs) What is the general price range?


Thanks!

Anything besides FedEx or DHL, you should not pay customs. ^

Thanks. I'll recommend CanadaPost since they seem to have the cheapest rate from Toronto.

I recently sold a pair of W+H boots to a buyer in Canada, and since the item sold for more than $250, PayPal policy requires that I obtain a signature.

I got a quote today from FedEx, and the cost of shipping it to his residence in Ontario is prohibitively expensive (around $80) in comparison to how much it would cost just shipping via USPS.

What do I do in this kind of situation? To be fully protected, I require a signature, but an $80 shipping cost is just a hard pill to swallow. Any advice here?

Is it possible to get signature confirmation on international packages, though?

yes, I think so - when you ship it, make sure you mark "signature required" - at least you used to be able to...

Oh man, I didn't know you were able to get signature required on international packages. Thanks!

Only Express mail is signature required. If you are printing postage online, there is no option (and they are not required to) get a signature.

Paid $2k for two suits from a senior forum seller over two months ago. After a month, I chased and he said they had been held up at customs and he had resent. Now another month, no suits and no reply to PM's to the seller. Anyone heard of packages turning up that late before (over a month from US to Switzerland)?
So question is, keep waiting and hoping or push for a refund?

^ Who's the seller? I had a one month delivery from Italy once. Usually, shipments to the EU are 2-3 weeks, but much depends on customs.

I'd rather not name the seller publicly unless he doesn't get back to my email or PM in the next few days. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt that he hasn't seen/ been able to reply to my messages for some reason before I mess with his reputation on here. There has been a thread wondering about his whereabouts before (that was resolved) but he has over 100 sales threads and good feedback from other members so I'm sure he's a stand-up guy. But even if he's been away on business and not seen my messages, there's still the matter of where my suits are. Two months since the payment (personal paypal) and one month since last cantact saying he has resent has made me nervous...
