Shipping within Canada. How can you do it?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to be competitive but shipping seems to be a killer. For example, if i want to ship a mug (4x4x4 box) from Montreal to Vancouver, it's showing that it will cost over 15$ of shipping... Am I missing something? I a lot of people on Amazon who charge 5$ shipping on their mugs.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

This is why I avoid business in Canada and only do in US.
With Amazon are you sure they aren't using amazon for shipping?

If I ship a box to a customer and Amazon shows $5.95 shipping that is what the customer will pay, that does not mean it was my actual shipping costs. My shipping costs were $11.

I se Canada Post Expedited Mail for my shipping needs. Fast, traceable and a reasonable price. Plus you can get a Small Biz card from them for 5% off each item shipped.
