Canada shipping - my box exceeds 36" max allowance for First Class...

What do I do? My shipping box exceeds the 36" total max allowance. I can't reduce the size because it's a Halloween costume with fairy wings and the wings are very big (can't fold in half or reduce the size). The package is 2lbs, 5oz. 24 inch in width, 18 inch length, 2 inch diameter. Was thinking shipping would be $15 or so. Looks like if the box didn't exceed 36" total, it would be $10.26 to ship.

Haven't agreed on the sale with buyer yet - she just wanted shipping quote.

you will have to go with the more expensive way of shipping, im not sure what they are called in the states, whatever is one step up from first class should allow the larger dimensions, so keep that in mind when working out a price for your buyer

Is the buyer willing to pay the difference in shipping? If not I would cancel the sale.
