No, she will use USPS, not UPS. She will use USPS Priority Mail, not USPS Global Express Mail. Global Express is more expensive than Priority. I usually purchase from USA sellers and also sell to USA. I know the shipping charge from and to USA.If they aren't sending it USPS and are using FedEx or UPS it CAN run that much VERY easily. I also think since USPS leaves USPS hands at customs and is delivered by local mail, it isn't the safest. I was quoted over 100 for a larger bag by UPS the other day. Shipping prices are HIGH!
Shoes probably cost me 15 - 20 dollars with insurance and signature confirmation and I usually just charge 10 because I don't want to lose bidders b/c of high shipping. Maybe its because of high oil prices.
