Sweet for the Canadians!
I heard USPS sucks though, so I don't know if they should be happy with it
Happy? No, but anything is an improvement. They are actually trying to stop door to door mail service! Our politicians are succeeding in turning us into a third world country.
Cool! Lets see how much I get charged at my door. Crossing fingers!
With USPS does one need to pay custom duty at the boarder?
Thanks for the update!
Took a long time
Is there anyway to change to usps after I paid but my order is still processing?
Hey I bought the 1+1 and chose express, little did I know that it was DHL and standard was USPS. Is there anyway of getting to pay the difference or getting usps to ship it? Can I get in contact with Oneplus? Im not a fan of paying $60 at the door.
Waiting for mine to show up, it was shipped Nov 11 by USPS. I hope it shows up soon.
I ordered two phones from Canada, DHL only ask me to pay $30 for both phones.
now I just need an invite. Pretty Pretty Please!!!!
It would be nice for a cheaper option. Buying a $350, paying the exchange rate, paying shipping and then getting a surprise $50 charge at the door. Even at $475 it's a great phone but it makes for a significant price difference once it's in your hand.
Good to hear. Hope members from Canada will be happy now!
YES! That's awesome news! I've never had a bad experience with USPS. Hopefully it stays that way
We appreciate your support. I nominate you as an honourary Canadian (honourary with a U because that's the Canadian spelling.)
I ordered OPO #1 via DHL (was the only choice) and paid ~+$60 at the door (~$45 in taxes / $15 in DHL handling charges).
I ordered OPO #2 on Saturday and saw the option for USPS and jumped on it. paid +$9 USD for the USPS option and hopefully nothing else at the door.
I've seen it reported that OPO has recently gone from declaring the package value $299 to much lower like <$99.
So that $60 DHL fee I paid before is now closer to $20-30 for most people (AB vs the rest of Canada).
As long as the USPS packages are similarly, uh... modestly declared... it should be good, even if you get hit with taxes and Canada Post handling it would still end up being a couple of bucks cheaper than DHL.
On the other hand, many people reported during the Canada Shipping Experiment that USPS shipping resulted in no further charges.
So, I'm hoping for $0 additional at the door for OPO #2, but understand that there's a good chance I'll be disappointed. We'll see.
Please update us when you receive your 2nd. Getting screwed with the high shipping/handling/exchange/duty is such a downer.
