Ship International Mail Online and Get a Head Start on the Holidays

Greenfield, WI — Shipping packages to friends and family around the world in time for the holiday season can be as simple as taking a short trip to your computer with the tools, tips and transactions available at usps.com. Whether ordering shipping supplies, printing postage, getting information about mailing guidelines, filling out required customs forms or requesting free package pickup, the U.S. Postal Service is ready to help international shippers get a head start on the holidays.

“Shipping packages around the world can often be done without leaving your home,” said Greenfield Manager Julie Joers. “Customers have a virtual Post Office available 24 hours a day to get their shipments prepared, paid and picked up.”

Joers said customers going online can save on postage and order free Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes. Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes are available in four sizes, with shipping prices starting as low as $11.45 to Mexico and Canada, or $13.45 to most other countries. Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes are also available free at any Post Office. Postage, labels and customs forms can be printed online anytime using Click-N-Ship. Information on free package pickup is available online at usps.com/pickup.

The Postal Service recommends the following deadlines for international delivery of holiday cards and packages by Dec. 25.
