    Be advised, their shipping discounts may be significantly more than those who sell at a lower quantity.

    I think TRS also gets you the same discount as Powerselling

    I hope that's true, for some reason I thought there were a couple levels. I will hit the TRS threshold at the next tally, the savings on shipping will really help!

    Actually TRS gets you a higher discount than Gold and Silver powerselling. Equal to Platinum or better.

    They phased out the Express International and International Standard Parcel a year or two ago. Priority Express is basically the same thing.

    So this isn't related to ebay but thought it may be a good place to ask. I purchased something at unionmade without being aware of their return policy for sale items (no returns). I immediately called them (they were closed) and e-mailed them to cancel the order. They shipped it out the next business day during the evening and refuse to redirect the package to them claiming it is final sale. Maybe I am in the wrong but is there any course of action where I could avoid this transaction?

    Hi,

    I can't let this tie go for this price. I paid more for it, and The typo in the title is the reason it sold so low. Something reasonable like 9.99 will suffice.

    No, it says all over the front page of their site that all sale items are final with No Returns or Exchanges. Once you submitted your order you lost all recourse. If you try to charge it back on your card, they should win that fight as well. Every single item on sale has the words "Final Sale" in the display, how could you not know?

    So you are looking for a way out / around their polices they have clearly listed? You cannot chalk this up as a lesson learned, rather try and put it back on the company for your error?

    - I know sometimes its hard to bite the bullet, but I'd give it some thought on this one. Also, can you resell your purchase to recoup your invested error?
