For this round will you also be using FedEX for international shipments? (I live in Canada). I've had many bad experiences with UPS - always comes with unexpected extra charges.

I live in Peru and always FEDEX, UPS, TNT, DHL always comes with unexpected extra charges too. Big charges, only USPS is cheap.

@Luis, @evil_md <br /><br />For the current round of Aune T1 group buy (round 2), the plan is to continue using shipping service by UPS Mail Innovation. We have resolved the package tracking issue some of our members were experiencing. So it shouldn't be a problem going forward.<br /><br />And just to clarify, UPS Mail Innovation uses USPS for international shipping. So there won't be any additional fees to worry about.

Nelson,<br /><br />You're misinformed. How does shipping USPS for international shipments mean that "there won't be any additional fees to worry about"?<br /><br />It might mean there won't be brokerage fees if you ship via USPS (only couriers charge this crap), but <br />there's definitely the potential for customs, which include taxes, service charges and potential duties.<br /><br />The only shipping methods of value to me (to Canada) are:<br />-USPS First Class<br />-And depending on how heavy and big the parcel is, USPS Priority<br />-UPS Mail Innovations is also pretty good (so far)<br /><br />Anything else by UPS, FedEx, DHL or couriers, I will refuse to buy now matter how appealing the price is.

@nelson So much for starting that countdown by the end of the day tuesday....No tracking number still :/ Hopefully that changes by tonight. This is getting ridiculous. And UPS/Fedex mail Innovations is a terrible service that ships via regular ground shipping and then hands off your package to local USPS, which does nothing but ADD INCONVENIENCE. USPS is a horrendous outdated service that really needs to either reform or GTFO

Just got my Aune in. Sounds absolutely great!<br /> @shrimants <br /><br />That's not true. USPS is an excellent method of shipping packages. I pretty much ship via USPS exclusively because their prices are way better than UPS or Fedex. Priority Mail is a bargain. The package would definitely fit inside a USPS Flat Rate Large Box which ships 2-3 days for a little over 15 bucks. That said, I agree with you 100% on UPS MI. It's stupid. Much better off going with either UPS Ground or USPS directly. Cut out the middle man.

Also, on the credit card statement, does the charge appear as "Massdrop"?
