ATTENTION. Delivery constraints continue to impact service to most International destinations. The USPS states “directly related to issues caused by the COVID-19 virus.
To resolve widespread flight cancellations affecting deliveries to open global locations, USPS has shifted from air to sea transportation until air transportation capacity becomes available. Delivery delays from the change to ocean freight are as long as an additional 20 days minimum. The arrival of packages to their final destination will depend on the time at sea and the duration of customs.

Current Listed USPS Parcel Transit Times Delays

Delivery and tracking issues we currently see with the USPS read here.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) continues to be the most popular shipping choice for Domestic and also International customers. However more than likely because it is the only mail service currently available to us.

First of all, we are not trying to make a profit on shipping.  The current pricing below includes packaging supplies, envelopes, boxes, tape, labels, and also someone’s labor to produce the package for pickup.

In addition, you may go to USPS and easily check the current postal rates for packages. Calculate shipping from 80122 to your country or zip code.

The USPS usually has a review for cost price increases every year in January.  The USPS  rates currently in effect are expensive for us and our customers, however, we have no choice but to use them. Also, they are the only mail service available in the United States.

Everything we ship is a package.

The USPS also defines any container or envelope over 5 mm thick and or weighing 56 grams or more is a package, therefore package shipping rates apply.

Lastly, we are a commercial shipper.  The USPS picks up from us every day.  If we under weigh packages by error or otherwise, the USPS can cancel the postage. Then return the package(s) to us for accurate weight on a new shipping label. So we avoid all that and follow their guidelines.

The USPS states there is not enough room on airplanes flying mail and supplies to Australia and New Zealand at this time. So they require Priority Mail Express International as the only shipping choice.

Shipping anything that fit in the USPS-Produced Envelope measuring 2.4cm x 3.0cm and can weigh up to 1.8 KG.
