EBay needs to cut their final valuation fees, they suck.

Chitchats is a good way to ship but with PayPal going away for eBay it's going to different on eBay and fees are crazy better to sell local

This is seperate from netparcel, this is directly with UPS either with your existing or new account.

I'm stuck on the add payment info page so will try again later but it'd be interesting to see if the rates are better than netparcel.

Do you print the label on eBay or is there a link to signup with UPS with these discounted rates? I sell everyday on eBay and I don't see this email. If you have a link to the discount it would be appreciated.

GoShippo sometimes is cheaper on domestic. I found better deals from Netparcel mostly on shipping to the US but sometimes domestic too

That's mostly because netParcel doesn't do CP, and CP is sometimes cheaper than UPS, especially if you are shipping to rural Canada.
In those cases I usually just buy my labels from CP directly.

I registered last night as I had a shipment
It's directly through UPS and the discount is associated with your account

Tested both UPS and NetParcel

On a shipment that was supposedly $50
UPS with discount - $30
NetParcel - $21

Anecdotal, of course
I'll try again with a couple more shipments just to check, but thinking NetParcel still the better option

I second this too. Netparcel is really hard to beat. I could send a small parcel to US for like 8-9 CAD, tracked and delivered within 5 days which is surreal when Canada Post charges much higher, easily over 15CAD for any tracked parcel. UPS standard also comes with insurance of up to 100CAD for free.

The issue I am having with UPS is with their exorbitant brokerage fees for incoming shipments to Canada. Has anyone tried getting a better deals on the brokerage fees ?

Has anyone tried creating a label on Netparcel without an automated Paypal payment ? I have some USD on my account and Paypal will charge that USD balance at a conversion rate of 1.25 (5-6% fees on top of spot rate). It seems that you can't configure an automated payment on Paypal to avoid balance draw as default, so I suppose the best for Canadians with USD balance is to initiate a manual payment on netparcel either with card or Paypal purchase if possible.

Unless you have a lot of monthly shipments and CP has given you a deeper discount than the basic SMB tier, GoShippo will be cheaper.

What is the volume needed to secure a deeper discount with CP? Do you get an email if you meet that threshold? How is the interface with GoShippo?

I tried shippo but could not see their partnered CP or UPS “Canada” shipping... only US, Europe and Australia was there...

Am i doing something wrong?

Would this work to send (rma to service center) an expensive item?

I was going to use the CP offer last month but thought if the package is lost there might be trouble claiming the insurance.

I always use the PP balance and didn't think much of it, but you bring up a good point

I wonder if we can change the default payment in the settings.

Re: incoming shipments. Is there a reason you use UPS and not USPS? The brokerage is stupid and I don't think you can get around it

I haven't found that to be the case, although this was back in the day where I was mostly shipping low weight, small boxes. I used GoShippo mostly due to the Paypal integration but since my eBay activity has dropped, so have my use of GoShippo.

Will try it again next time I ship something bigger.

You can set up netParcel with a Paypal agreement so that it always takes it out of your CC via Paypal.
