Exclamation PEOPLE FROM ONTARIO, CANADA come here PLEASE :)

Hi everyone :)
I was wondering if there is anyone out there from ontario (toronto, mississauga, oakville, burlington, hamilton area) that would like to split shipping for bettas from aquabid? I currently havent bought any but I did bid on two so far. Shipping is absolutely ridiculously expensive, its now $90 for shipping plus 15$ per betta on top of the $90. So we would split the $90, and you would be responsible for your own $15 per betta fee. I would ship it to my work place (Pet Paradise) here in Burlington, and you would have to pickup or I could meet you halfway etc. Shipping it to a business would be proper I think that way theres no thoughts of anyone being scammed or what not. PLEASE let me know if you are interested, shipping is SO expensive on my own, and I thought Id try to find someone to ship with me. Forgot to also mention, the $90 is only up to 6 bettas, so it would be 3 each unless you want more than obviously go up a box and split the difference.

betta count: 10 Males

Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.

Yay!!! Its so expensive to do it alone, so it would be half and half is that ok? Either way I get one betta and you get one, it would still be $90 for the box so stupid, so it would be $45 each ok? are you comfortable with it being shipped to my work as well?

Awesome, I am definitely OK with paying $45 each, 50% off is better than nothing, hahaha! I am actually more comfortable shipping it to your work, it would be easier for me to find the place, XD!

So how is this going to work? I haven't bid on my boy yet :P Should I do that now? He's got 12h left

Yes bid on him and pay for him like you normally would. Im gonna ask the transhipper to combine our bettas to my work address wen its shipping time so ill need your full name and address i guess and username if thats ok otherwise ill ask david what he needs. Dont pay me for shipping you can give me cash the day they are delivered to my work place. Ill give you the full address my name etc. So that your more comfortable with this. My work is called pet paradise our website is www.petparadise.info and phone number 905 331 7381 so you just know! :) ummmm if i think or anything else to add i will lol so just note that it will be $45 (half of the $90) shipping and the $15 fee that david charges per betta, so if your getting only one the total is $60.

Anyone else who wants to join in is welcome we could just get a bigger box!!! Lol
