    I don't do a high enough volume to deliver a verdict but for the handful of things I've sold since Shippo came out in Canada I've noticed the discount on Canada Post labels has been either the same as PayPal or slightly better. I also like the interface better than PayPal's but for now I'll still be checking the rates through both services and going with the cheaper option.

    That being said, you're in Markham where at least two businesses offer USPS forwarding (ChitChats and StallionExpress) for a much better price than you can get shipping through any Canada Post service. They may be worth looking at instead if you haven't already considered them.

    Yep, I know of the two. I use Stallion extensively for USPS since it's cheaper than ChitChats per package. Shippo gave me a similar rate for a 12" x 12" x 5" package that weighs 2KG as Stallion and Chitchats, and dropping it off at Canada Post was more convenient, hence I gave Shippo a try.

    Interface is nice, but refunds on unused or void labels are returned as shipping credit, not to the card used which does suck, since eBay returns
