Is the idea to get a better price in Canadian funds as a purchaser, or save money on shipping, or is there a perceived convenience?
In fact I have posted things for sale and have yet to have a Canadian respond, everything has been sold to US fliers. And because I attend US launches often it is mostly hand delivered or handed off to be delivered, and rarely shipped. On the purchasing side I have yet to buy anything from a Canadian. However I have purchased from a lot of US fliers and shipping is mostly from the US seller to the US address of another US flier that I have developed a friendship with over the years and he allows me to ship to his home, or direct to me, or a pickup/hand-off at a US launch.
Besides that, for some unknown reason, shipping from Toronto to the rest of the country is ridiculous. Just lookup how much it cost to ship from Nfld. to BC./Nfld. to Toronto or BC. to Nfld./BC. to Toronto. Then compare that to how much it cost to ship from Toronto to BC. or Toronto to Nfld. It seems that once the word Toronto is inserted into the shippers address the price doubles. For me it is more often cheaper to ship to the US.
I believe that this would work against us as sellers and I see little if any advantage as a purchaser.
