LIMITED TIME OFFER - Not a handout but a hand up.
Fundraising for The Columbia Exchange's new facility.
We have an exciting new temporary program designed to assist The Columbia Exchange (previously the Waneta Quick Stop) in building the new logistics services facility thereby saving the same superior parcel and freight services at the same close distance from the border for our loyal Canadian clientele.
With this limited-time offer, our clients are able to lock in 2019-2020 parcel and freight receiving rates and enjoy the same superior services at the new location (next door) until their pre-paid credit is used up, at that time service fees will revert to the 2020-2021 price schedule.
Pre-pay the amount you choose from the table below thereby gaining access to a multi-faceted return by
1. having your service fee rate locked in under the 2019 price schedule and
2. benefit from an added percentage above the amount pre-paid under this temporary program. Earn a benefit from 20% to 50% depending on the amount you pre-pay.
This is a win/win for our great customers. The higher the prepayment amount the greater the return and overall savings on future service fees with The Columbia Exchange/Waneta Quick Stop.

Frequently Asked Questions
My order said Free Shipping, why are you charging me?
WQS is not affiliated with your seller. WQS charges a handling fee to use the USA address, receive, and hold your package which is not included in your seller's shipping. The fees at WQS cover the use of your USA address at WQS. By using WQS address you agree to our terms of service.
My order says my parcel has arrived in Colville, why isn't it here?
Items will show “signed by” and “Delivered to Agent” when they are at WQS. WQS is not the Colville Post Office, WQS is a privately owned commercial mail receiving agency. Once items arrive, WQS needs time to scan, log, sticker, and sort every item.
My order says it was delivered today, can I pick it up?
WQS Staff needs time to process; daily received items are not in our system until we sort, log, sticker, and place each item in our warehouses. Multiple carriers complete daily deliveries ranging from 50-400 items—every day. Please wait until the following day of the delivery notification from the carrier or seller.
EXPEDITE- $5 in addition to the receiving fee.
DURING HEAVY RECEIVING DAYS EXPEDITES ARE NOT AVAILABLE
Please message in advance if you expect to “expedite.”
FedEx Express is exempt from this policy
Express arrives “around 4:30 PM” daily
I don’t have a customer number yet, do I have to drive there first?
Don't have a PMB number yet?
You must submit the form 1583 to WQS and the Colville Post Office before you can use your PMB.
Use your WQS assigned PMB number on every "ship to" address.
The US Postal Service will "return to sender" any item improperly addressed and any addressee that does not match the 1583 form on file at the Colville post office at their sole discretion.
The Customer Number assigned by WQS Agents is your PMB number.
Every customer who receives mail and parcels at WQS is a Private Mailbox client.
By using this address you agree to our terms of service.
Why wouldn't I write Waneta Quick Stop?
WQS has over 3000 registered customers using “their USA address.” By using WQS address you agree to our terms of service which provides your own private USA address. You are shipping your order to You, NOT to the Waneta Quick Stop.
Do you take Canadian money?
Yes, at the current daily local exchange rate, based on the rate at which our USA financial institution will purchase it. Your rate will always be better at your financial institution
Why are you charging me Postage Due?
The USPS inspects all its deliveries, sometimes their reasoning is due to the shipper using the wrong packaging, or entering the incorrect dimensions/weight. Postage Due is assessed by the USPS. WQS will NO LONGER “front” ANY amounts for our customer's convenience. WQS never charged any markup or fee for Postage Due Loans. Postage DUe Loans are no longer an option at WQS unless arranged in advance in writing.
Why are you upset and charging me because I am meeting the delivery driver on the street and don't want to pay WQS?
By using WQS address you agree to WQS Terms Of Service. When items are ordered and WQS address is used for the order we charge a fee to use our address, that is the business model. When people use WQS address and attempt to avoid paying the fee it is considered stealing. People caught stealing from WQS will be “trespassed” from WQS by filing a report with the Stevens County Sheriff stating this person is no longer welcome because of theft. Once a person is reported as trespassed if they attempt to visit the store they may be arrested for “trespass”. Three trespass violations in the US and there may be an issue crossing the border.
