I sold an item on Ebay last night.
My auction stated shipping to the United States only. Nothing about Canada.
I get an email that my item has sold, and there is a Paypal payment for it. I check Paypal, and see that they buyer is in Canada, and has paid me the 6 dollars for US Priority Mail.
I emailed back, and told him that I was not prepared to ship to Canada, and that if he wanted it, he needed to pay 10 dollars more for Priority International. He responded saying that 16 was too high, and that they didnt care about Priority, and would I find a cheaper way, and get back to him? (FTR, the only cheaper way is 9 dollars, and involves busting my rear to make it into town on a Saturday before noon, and my reasoning for NOT offering Canada shipping follows…)
My problem is that I live 15-20 minutes away from ANY post office that ships internationally, and the ONLY time I can get there is Saturday morning, and they close at NOON. The ONLY 24 hour PO is one of those automated kiosks, and they dont ship internationally.
So I rely on USPS.com for clicking, printing, and scheduling pickups of my packages.
And I only do US shipping. 6.00 priority mail for this particular item.
Am I being unreasonable? I did state in the auction that I shipped to United States…no where did I say Canada. Saturday mornings are reserved for my husband and children. Not to drive all over the place to ship packages that I can easily ship from home during the week.
