But then a person in Canada said they would buy it for $15 and then they get offended when I said they needed to pay more ($7 more for the difference in shipping costs) for the shipping since it will cost $10 to ship to them instead of $3.

Maybe it's just me, but I shouldn't be expected to bear the burden of shipping costs to foreign countries. I could easily sell the item to someone in the US and make more money, and that is what I did.
That being said - if you have an "OBO" clause on your thread, and I were to offer to split shipping, I would think that would be fair. Yet some people get bent out of shape about that too.

It's all relative to the item cost and the cost to ship. Like in my example, it was $15, and if $10 of that (and fees too) are taken out, it really isn't worth it for me to ship it since I won't get any money in the end. If I was selling something for $50 that would be a different story since the sale would be high enough that a little extra shipping expense wouldn't be a big deal.

I've dealt with canadians several times and continue to because 95% of them are the nicest guys. And almost everytime I've delt with them they pay more then what I ask cause I usually undercharge by 2-5 dollars cause I feel bad for them sometimes and they almost always pay over the top or gift or do extra. Just my 2cents.

Floundah: thanks or posting this. Paintball is a relatively small sport as it is so we might as well help eachother out.

Love me my American neoghbors.

I get that the shipping is outrageous at times, but the point of this thread was to show that Canada is good people, so new people shouldn't not deal with them because they are nervous..

I don't usually start negative feedback threads, but this Canadian deserved it.

Otherwise, all my experiences with Canadians have been very good.

As for shipping costs, a couple years ago when I tried to ship a Tippmann A5 to Canada it was going to cost $40 shipping. New rules they said. I can ship it much farther across the USA for $15. Unfortunate since there are many good Canadian buyers.
