Unless you grossly overestimate your dimensions and weights, I find this extremely hard to believe., given that many others have confirmed these extra post-purchase charges. Unless you're...special? Interested to hear specifics of purchase habits and shipping dynamics.
It has been since 2008'ish that even with normally conservatively measuring & weighing my parcels, I would still get a $1-$2 additional charge a day after my waybill purchase is processed. I was told it was fuel surcharges fluctuating and being passed on from the actual courier. I put up with it from 2008-2011. I haven't really used E SHIPPER since then - beyond 1 shipment every 3-6months, and even then I get billed extra a couple bucks.
I am no longer in that "rural city" but in an actual 'metropolis' - shipping TO GTA or MTL proper, and I STILL see these surcharges. It baffles my mind.
Ex: March 8: couriered box to GTA, $14.12
March 16 $1.73 billed
They're sleazy cuz if you go back to your invoices, they retroactively adjust the invoice to reflect "one billed item" of $15.85 Lol, as if.
FYI., my orig. weight and BILLED weight match., so it's not like I misrepresented the waybill.
