How much does it cost you to ship overseas from the US???

I have had a few mamas seem upset that my shipping is $10 to ship to Canada. When shipping through pp it gives me 2 choices, priority and international. Priority is cheapest and that is 10.88 Most mamas seem fine but some seem upset it's so much. Am I doing something wrong? If there is another way to ship overseas cheaper please let me know. This is to ship any of my items big or small.

Thanks!!!

I have sent first class to Canada and the most it has been is $1 more, which is why I charge $2.50 to ship to US and $3.50 to Canada.

The biggest issue I have is getting to the PO to fill out the customs forms. Which still is pretty minor.

Really? Hmmm, I wonder if it's because I ship from home? I hate to go to the po to ship but if it saves my customers money I may have to.

You can only print priority/international online, not FC when its overseas/international. HOWEVER, priority international/express is the safest, quickest easily trackable way to ship anywhere outside of the US. You can't track/confirm first class. I try to avoid shipping to Canada for small items because of this. But you can use a flat rate envelope and stuff a bunch in.. or a medium flat rate box, etc. You can also print the customs forms online.. Ive done it a lot.. but like I said before, Id only do it on multiple items or $$$ packages. Ive been burned too much shipping to canada first class on small items.

You can ship first-class and then purchase separate insurance very inexpensively. U-Pic is great and very reliable.
