To add insult to injury we paid $42 for shipping just a few pounds and $5 to receive it at the post office in Quito! It was the last straw. I decided to enroll in ClubCorreos http://secure2.transexpress.com/clubcorreos/
ClubCorreos assigned me a Miami postal address and phone number, charged me $11 for a yearly subscription and viola!!! I do my online shopping and have it sent to my Miami (ClubCorreos) address and when my parcels get there it takes anywhere from 6 - 10 days to be delivered from Miami to our doorstep in Quito. The price for delivery is much cheaper as well. Two pounds delivery cost about $10, eight pounds delivery cost us $41.
The only trick they (ClubCorreos) pull on you - they are always upping the number of pounds. For example one of our parcels weighed 0.6 pounds - they put 3 pounds as weight and so on.
Still, it is cheaper and much quicker, than regular mail.
