I'm sure this is a very common complaint from those dealing with UPS when it crosses over to Canada.
I paid $40 for a jacket.
The website only offered UPS shipping, so I accepted, paid the approx $17 in shipping fees and had the item delivered.
It arrived a day early, fortunately, but unfortunately, I was not home. Even more unfortunately is the fact that, whether I was home or not, I would have to pay a Brokerage C.O.D. fee of $17 to UPS. That's how much they charge when crossing the border to Canada.
In total, I would be spending $36 in shipping fees for a $40 item.
I've had things shipped to me from China and I've never payed this much in fees (the entire product price) yet, with UPS, this seems common place. I was absolutely enraged.
And apparently it's my job as a consumer to verify this? BS.
It's not like I did something wrong, or I am a unique case. They charge this ALL THE TIME, as if they're a novelty company that sprays your packages in perfume and wraps them in pretty ribbons. I'm not happy at all.
Monetary Loss: $17.
