Exclamation Canadian Transshippers: HELP

Hello all, I was just wondering if anybody knows any Canadian shippers... "David" on Aquabid is charging me $105 total from Thailand to my house... Is this normal? All this guy does is MAIL the fish, meanwhile the poor breeder makes $20 off of this, WTF.

I haven't bid yet, Auction closes on Thursday... What to do... :/

I think the transhippers pay a set amount every time they get a shipment in, so if they're not getting very many they won't be able to split the cost as much

that is extremely bizarre. im waiting for my betta on AB to ship. i live in montreal and i'll have to go thru transhipper either way. he said h'ed charge me $20 from Thailand-Montreal. i will drive down to his house to pick it up. where do you live and what are the details of your purchase? i'm a first time buyer on AB. i only contacted him after i purchased the betta on AB.

his words exactly.
"Hi Jonathan, shipping cost from Thailand to me = 20$ for each betta and you can pick up bettas at my place.
"

I emailed him last night and he said $15 to Thailand Breeder and $90 for 6 fish. I asked for a single fish quote. Anyways, you may be stuck with paying whatever now. I don't believe your fish should come to $100 unless you bought the fish for $70 on AQ. If you are picking up the fish from him, he should charge you the fee for his services, but not any shipping fees. Stand up for yourself and ask for a detailed list of costs. You should only be paying fish+thailand ship+his fee for getting fish and thats it. If I got with Thailand, I'll be sure to look for another trans shipper.

Also, I just bought a Betta male from Montreal and I'm having it shipped to me on the Greyhound Bus (36h) and it cost me $30some dollars for shipping. Just to toss that in there.
