Shipping Costs To Canada
I spoke about this in another thread, but it wasn't a thread specifically about shipping costs to Canada and i feel like its my duty as a Canadian to warn other Canadians.
I placed an order for the first time on upgraded self for some coffee, MCT, cacao butter and collagen.. Total cost was $222.80 US. After shipping it came to $248.50 and then exchange rate a total of $266.00 I was a little pissed about the current exchange rate but what can ya do. At no time in the order process did it tell me who the courier would be. Just standard shipping? Order placed. Got some nice email updates of my order etc. Then, the bomb! Got my UPS notice when I got home today. They are charging me $94.01 to pick the parcel up. I have had this sort of issue with UPS before. They charge ridiculous handling fees to actually get the parcel. I order things from the US all the time and the only carrier that consistently does this is UPS. I try to get most things via USPS and its flawless and inexpensive. Im disappointed that this is the courier that Dave chose and I have had an email exchange with them over the charge. They deny any responsibility for the charge which is technically correct but anyone in the business world should know the rates couriers charge and especially if the CEO is living in Canada.!
I will return to Onnit for my bullet proof coffee as they have a nice tidy $14.00 USPS option that comes in a couple weeks with no such extra handling fees.
I repeat... $115.00 to ship coffee to me!!! WTF?
Fellow Canadians are officially warned.
