I have been shipping and getting items from ebay rencently and I will only do it through USPS (getting) or Canada Post Expedited Parcel (sending). Everything else is a total rip off.
I despise companies and people that refuse to ship any other way than UPS, fed ex or Purolator cuz the KNOW about the charges & brokerage fees.
I don't think I should pay some UPS guy $60 USD to be my rep at the border, cuz UPS is getting that same fee for the 700 other boxes on the truck!
GRRRRRRRR @ them!
