Shipping to the US via NetParcel

Post by Steph »

I don't know how many people ship stuff to the US,
but if you do, look for NetParcel.com

They really are WAY cheaper.

Tracked UPS package to California for $6. (CDN!)
NEXT DAY service to the US East Coast for $22 !

That really IS 75-80% off normal prices.

Strangely, it only really works when shipping to the US.
When shipping within Canada, the discount isn't nearly as good.

(... the same package I send to California for $6, is $13 to BC... )

I don't usually give out free plugs, but I've used this service 10-12 times now,
and the savings are really spectacular.

Just adding to this thread...

I was able to ship a package TO MYSELF , from someone in the US.

I was interested in something that would have cost $60US to ship to Canada via USPS.

So I wondered if I could use NetParcel to create a UPS label to ship to myself,
and e-mail the label as a PDF file to the seller.
( I put the seller as sender, and myself as recipient, but I created and paid for the shipping label)

It worked !!!

The seller printed the label, put it on the box, and shipped it out.
No problem.

My cost ? $18 CDN !!!

This is almost too good to be true...
