If you haven't received a tracking number please let me know.

Please let me know how your plants arrive

Fedex hasn't charged me yet but I'm assuming the "hold" amount of $171.81 on my checking account is them.

I don't have anything else coming out so it makes sense. Those jerks... That seems like overkill for a 4 hour distance. Probably because our box weighed 15lbs and was gigantic.

Okay, once you get a final charge from Fedex:

I believe we've already given some money towards US shipping (or maybe not?) but it's obviously not nearly enough. So we owe you.

This is what we all agreed to (a quote from myself from the beginning of this thread) "Last time, we divided the CITES/Phyto charges evenly by the number of people and the rest by each individual's percentage of the total order price."

So maybe, when you're ready, you can do one last calculation for each of us?

171 for shipping even a 15 lb box is super overkill what the heck.

I just used the Fedex calculator for a 15 lb package from Jamaica, NY to Binghamton, NY. The most expensive price was $71. So even an oversized box shouldn't add $100, should it?

When it posts to my account it will say what it's for. Right now there are no details.

I don't think I have anything else coming out right now but maybe.


I'm not really worried about it really.

You guys have been more than generous.

And I'll be more than happy to drive to Paypal's headquarters in person and demonstrate my sign language skills... ;)

I guess they charged me more than the maximum. I don't really understand but it is what it is.

I'll give them a call Monday just to ask them. At first I thought maybe they charged to go pick the package up from the USDA but the inspection agent called me when the exchange was made and she made it seem like she dropped the package off to them personally. She may not have though.

Again, not really too worried. Just wanted you all to know I wasn't bluffing since their site clearly states like a $70 max.

$123.90

I am really looking forward to everyone receiving their plants FINALLY after this long process :)

Be sure to bring a snack. There's likely to be a long line.

You should record the conversation between You and the paypale representative. If they took money from you when they aren't suppose to making it known to the rest of the world may help.
