This poster-mailing business is starting to make me go a bit loony.
Figure this one out! I can mail a poster to the United States for only a bit more than what it costs to mail my shirts. I can mail a poster to nearly anywhere else on the planet for only a buck or two more than that. But if I want to mail a poster to Ontario -- a province in my own country -- it costs more than twelve dollars!
Apparently, unlike American or International shipping, Canada Post does not have a "small packet" classification for in-Canada shipping. That means that anything that's not a letter has to be sent at full-parcel rates, which are very expensive. (And then they add an extra dollar if the parcel is a tube, because tubes are round and round things can roll off the converyor belts and require extra handling. I am not making this up!)
I'm not really sure what to do here. I don't feel right about boning my fellow Canadians with high shipping charges. But if I charge Canadian buyers the same price I'd charge Americans, I'll actually end up losing money on the sale.
Are there any Canadians in the audience who have had to deal with this kind of problem before? If you have any advice for me, drop me an email!
