Default eBay question

If I am shipping to Canada from the US, is there anyway to track it?

What would be the best company to use?

Fedex? Ups? Usps?

I don't want to get screwed and I was just wondering.

Thanks.

All depends how much you are willing to pay.

I thought priority mail international to Canada could be tracked but it isn't cheap.

Global Express through the Post Office has tracking but it will cost double or triple priority.

I know Fed Ex can be tracked, no knowledge of UPS other than their customs fees are hard to avoid so often time you get unhappy customers.

The USPS priority mail international is only able to be tracked up to the point it hits customs, after that nothing is guaranteed.

Best advise is not to sell to international buyers then no shipping to them as well. Very expensive!

Well I am willing to pay, I am located in California, do you have an idea or an estimate on how much it would be?

What is the weight of what you are mailing?

I mailed a 1lb package via Global express for about $52 last Christmas (to Canada). It arrived in 2 days (even though it is supposed to be overnight to Canada). Global express is actually executed by Fed Ex, but you send it through the post office. You can also insure it for up to $5k.

1.1 lb so about the same as yours.

so $52 would be the cheapest or is that because you chose overnight?
