Canada Post Expedited Lite

Ship small. Save Big.

Shipping small, lightweight items like trading cards, discs, jewelry, or comic books with a tracked service can be cost-prohibitive. But shipping with an untracked service can negatively impact the experience for both buyers and sellers. That’s why we have partnered with Canada Post to offer a domestic tracked service for lightweight items, with all the great features of the Expedited Parcel™, service at significantly lower prices.
