The USPS offers multiple options for shipping mail internationally, each one meant to suit a specific purpose. Below I have detailed the most commonly used shipping methods, and included prices where applicable. 

 

Keep in mind that while International shipping can be just as simple as domestic shipping, proper steps must be taken to ensure that the whole process goes smoothly. For additional International shipping topics, check out Customs Information, UPS International and FedEx Internationalglobal
