So the issue is international shipping charges. Does PWCC use the Global Shipping Program, first class with tracking, or is it a customs issue?

The prices I see, and likely what most CDN's see as well. Thought it might be different stateside but previous threads about their shipping fees, nothing was mentioned.

In this thread I started, I listed some other prices I seen and wondered why shipping was all over the place? (post#9)

I can't speak for PWCC but everything I have read is shipping charges for cards and especially cards of value that are declared have exploded going to Canada.

Stinks for Canadian collectors.

Global is actually cheaper, which is shocking! I can still find dealers stateside who charge $3.00 dollars for shipping.

They are not insuring cards and sending them with tracking. Totally different ball game and they most certainly aren't putting the value on the customs form at that price.


Complicated issue in reality.

The last time I tried to ship something insured to Canada it was ridiculously expensive and there were just no good options.

PWCC is selling other people's cards. They can't take the risk of an item being sent internationally and some scammer saying they didn't get it.

This has happened to so many collectors over the years. They must send with protection for the seller and unfortunately it costs a lot to send to Canada now.

Insured, not likely, but tracking, yes.

Prices are all over the place. I have seen some as cheap as 6-9 dollars and some all the way up, like PWCC's, over $65. There is no way it costs PWCC that much money to insure, with tracking on cards less than $100-$150 dollars.

Like I have mentioned numerous times before, they are making bank with their shipping fees.
