well thats why I said "a lot of people", not "everyone" lol
I will put my 2 cents in... I agree... I don't mind sending ANYWHERE as long as it is accounted for in the trade! What's the big deal??
I fully understand not wanting to ship at such insane prices.
Also dornhoffer, if you're willing to compensate, why don't YOU just offer it up, rather than expect someone else to offer it to you? Especially if the alternative is a post where you whine incessantly.
All I am saying is I see the frustration in the posts from American members with the price increase. I just want to say that I for one would gladly eat that and pay you the difference if I wanted the trade, in efforts to keep the trading going. The potential loss of trade partners in the US is frustrating me. thaat was the intent , nothing more
I have no idea why a member picked up the ball and ran the wrong way. It seemed so simple,but nothing ever goes that way with a troller in the ranks
...and I'm done with it.
From an american here....
We all see the point of the Canadian shipper/trader here BUT what us americans are saying is in 2008 if they made shipping to Canada $2.20 like it was for you it is no Big deal but in this economy where Minimum wage is $7.25 (IN NY and less in most places) $6.55 is a lot to spend. If the price for us jumped to what you are paying now from what we WERE paying there would be no issue.
DORN- Your line that sayes something along the lines as "Tables turn sucks dont it" shows more of a Jealousy that the USPS was less greedy then that of Canada post. I think think the arguement your trying to make is more of a "I had to pay more now its your turn haha" rather then being mad at lack of trades considering theres more Canadian hockey traders then US IMO.
on a 25 trade a month comparison you guys spent $55 (At $2.20 per bubble mailer) as opposed to us having to spend $163 (At $6.55 per Bubble Mailer) that extra $100+ is a week of food shopping, 3-4 days of gas, Half a months food shopping or hell even a hobby box (if your one of the more fortunate these days). So for me to cut out trading AS MUCH to Canada to put food on the table or gas in my car then thats what most will do.
PS..... Please dont even argue back with "If you cant afford food or gas then dont collect cards" I was proving a point.
I would like to point out that the same bubble mailer with Tracking from Canada to USA costs more than 12$. And tracking helps your ratings on eBay.
