Canadian shipping questions -pet peeve
Hi -So, I've listed a bunch of jeans on ebay. Shipping to the US is $25 using Canada Post Expedited shipping, which includes tracking, delivery confirmation and insurance. Still, I get so many questions from Americans saying that shipping is unreasonable and can I lower the shipping prices. I even say in my listing that they can check shipping costs on Canada Post and I'm not lying. Still, for every listing, I get many people asking me about costs. This morning, my email is filled with 8 questions on shipping costs (I only listed 10 items).
Am I missing something? Can I lower the price of shipping somehow and still protect myself with tracking? I have a Venture One card to get the discount.
When I buy something from the US, I expect to pay $25-$30 in shipping and I don't fuss. Why can't US ebay people accept shipping costs in the reverse? International buyers don't seem to have a problem with it…I almost want to ban Americans from my auctions …sorry…my rant.
But if I can lower costs of shipping, please let me know...
