Just blatantly trying to rip me off, because they know that if they just add an inch, it will knock it up another $10 or something.
What length of items are you shipping? Parcel Post charges the same rate for any package up to 130 inches in length + girth, which is a huge advantage over UPS.
I ship 4x4 tubes that are 74 inches long for regular Parcel post rates all the time. You have to have a seriously-long package to get charged balloon rates.
TODAY, I observed a FedEx parcel being left... not on a porch, not in a secure spot, but RIGHT ON THE PUBLIC SIDEWALK, leaning against the side of a building. Near, but not at, a side door into an apartment building. And I saw the delivery person leave it there. new sig line - Fed Up with FedEx.
... we have not had a problem with returns from these previously "invalid" addresses.
The other nice thing about stamps.com is that the address block is just one square instead of a form for each line, like on usps.com. It is loads faster. Except for international, which is still wiggy. I have figured out that for international on stamps.com, you need to put the city, province, and postal code on the same line with no commas, country spelled out on the next line, then let the software keep the province on the same line as the city. It goes through okay then.
DOes anybody have a recommendation for shipping from US to CANADA...
