    USPS First Class International Postage

    I've ordered something from the states via this method.

    USPS' website says delivery varies to location.

    Has anyone had anything delivered via this method?

    How long does it normally take?

    Thanks.

    its essentially the equivalent of first class international.

    It's crazy prices for postage in the states. That Blu-ray cost me $10.95 and $9.95 delivery.

    I buy from the usa all the time and i've had it here in under 3 days inc time difference but it is usually 4-6 working days in my experience. First class international delivery is really cheap though, a dvd actual postage cost should only be about $3-4!!

    they also do flat rate international boxes i think which start at about $13 and its pretty much y whatever you can fit inside it and its fine to post :P

    USPS Global Priority Mail is the best shipping option from US to UK. Stuff usually arrives in three-four days. As it's flat rate (for anything up to 4lbs in weight) it's ideal for if you're buying more than one thing. For individual blu rays 1st class is probably cheaper though.

    the envelopes are better than the boxes imho, and are the same price :thumbsup:
