Which brings us back to my original point: You CANNOT ship anything for $1.97.

$1.97 may be for standard USMail, or first class mail, but neither is a PayPal-approved method.

If you look in the PayPal policies, *ANYTHING* you ship *MUST* have an "online trackable" tracking number.
Anything. If you send something USMail, and the buyer says it never got there, you have no proof.
If they file a dispute, yo AUTOMATICALLY LOSE, period. No discussion, no faxing the USMail receipt - seller loses, period.

And if the price is $250 or above, it MUST be sent with signature/delivery confirmation.

USMail, and first class mail do *NOT* have a tracking number option - must be Parcel Post or above, and
I think the Parcel Post minimum price is like $2.50 or so. Priority Mail starting price is $4.60.
Add a tracking number for $0.90 (I think) and you're at $3.40 or $5.50 accordingly.

Now does $9 from Canada to the US seem unreasonable?
We're talking domestic rates - look up the rate for sending 8oz Parcel Post to Canada from almost anywhere in the US, and
you'll see it's actually rather fair, if not kind of low.

Seller is in Manitoba. If you are in the US, he can't send anything bigger than a letter for $1.97.

I asked why he was charging $9 to mail an item which cost $1.97 to mail. His 
response was to ban me. His feedback is very bad:


He also leaves vile feedback for those he has screwed. Watch yourself.

 I just had a very unpleasant exchange with this guy in Manitoba, Canada. 
 Be careful about any dealings you may have with him - looks like a bad 
 one to me. I have reported him to eBay and I hope he is banned.


 Why? What happened? I have a couple of bids on his stuff.
