we ALWAYS ship USPS to canada. Gotta help you guys out whenever possible...
Not too long ago I wanted to buy a case for my new iPod Touch. The one I wanted I couldn't find anywhere local. It was only like $29 USD on the manufacturer's website, but when I went to actually purchase it, the *cheapest* shipping option to Canada was over $40, I think about $43 or $44. Bear in mind this is for a small box that weighs maybe an ounce. And the cheapest shipping option was around 1.5x the price of the item. C'mon! I think part of the problem was they didn't have an option for Canadian shipping, it was 2 or 3 choices for domestic US shipping, and then two choices for "international", both north of $40.
I emailed them to politely "complain" and see if there was anything they could do and they replied that with their shipping partner that was the cheapest option for them. Very lame. In the meantime, I wound up finding a seller on eBay that sold the case for $20 and only charged me about $5 or $6 to ship, so that was a no-brainer. I dunno, I just don't see why the manufacturer wouldn't seek other options. I mean, I could afford their shipping price but on principle I just could NOT bring myself to pay it. I can't imagine anyone outside of the USA would ever order through them, and they're probably losing sales. Silly.
