EXACTLY! Never UPS to Canada. Ever.Been there, done that! UPS "broker" = highway robbery! In the future, if you buy something from US/overseas, ask sellers to ship using either EMS or USPS Global Priority. FedEx is great too (with NO brokerage fees, I might add!).
Yah, they're usually not that much, but with UPS it the brokerage fee can be almost anything they call it. Sucks. My friend bought me a pair of shoes from ebay and had it sent over to my house as a surprise gift and the surprise to me was the UPS guy asking me for $70 to get my item. WTH. My "brokerage" fee was like $35 or something. Rip off.EXACTLY! Never UPS to Canada. Ever.
Broker fees are usually around $5.00 aren't they? Or is that the road fee?

I thought Fed Ex was expensive too.
I knew UPS would be expensive - I wasn't really paying attention when I bid - I thought it said USPS. I thought I was getting a deal - not after all the fees
It was a cles worth $150. The same day I got some Shoes worth $250 shipped USPS and the total fee on that was $25.
But what IS a broker - what the heck does 'he' do? (I remember getting stuff shipped to my school through FedEx and they called to ask if I had a broker - I was like - huh??)
Also - How do I get a job like that at $40 a pop LOL
Well - you are just no help at all!!! Just kidding Thanks =)your so cute Nyria.. lol.. had to say that, but i have no idea what the broker does either!
WOW - that's the best description possible -- thanks =)http://www.alis.gov.ab.ca/occinfo/C...GetHTMLProfile&format=html&OCCPRO_ID=71001626
Here you go... I avoid UPS and Fedex, to the point I now don't bid on items if they will not ship USPS. Each company has a list of fees they charge, usually based on the value of the item.
