cheapest shipping services in canada?

im trying to be an ebay seller but the problem is that shipping can be quite expensive (which im sure is scaring some of my customers away) it usually costs 15 dollars AT MINIMUM just to send a tiny bubble envelope via canada post, is there any cheaper options a person like me could pursue?

    Post office is always cheapest. Always, unless you're Amazon. I just checked the post office rates vs Fedex rates, same size parcel, 1/2 kilo weight, same locations within Canada. Fedex's cheapest was $36.43 compared to Canada Post's $18.49 for a small flat rate box and 16.90 for a small parcel. If you are shipping large amounts regularly, the courier companies will give discounts. I have no idea what volume it would have to be before they do that, or how much discount they give.
