As a supporter of our site, Phil has already made a splash with his generosity and willingness to help others. In a conversation earlier this week, I asked him to throw this guide together to assist those who are wanting to ship cards over the border to Canada with Tracking. I thought it was a great follow up to an older piece I did, Pucaing Internationally from the US.
Shipping bubble mailers international to Canada WITH tracking, withOUT getting overcharged!
So the subject of international shipping has come up, with a few mentioning they can’t ship with tracking internationally for less than $15 US. I’m here to show you how to quickly and easily change that.
To begin, you must have a Paypal account. If you don’t have one, GET ONE.
Next, go here:
This will take you to the Paypal login page. Log in and you should see a popup like this:
This is the easiest place to input your shipping info, starting with the country. Once you fill that out, it should take you to this page:
Notice the service type and package type chosen. These are the reasons why:
According to the USPS description, a large envelope being sent First-Class Internationally may be up to 11.5 inches long, 6.125 inches high, and UP TO ¼ INCH THICK. This covers the majority of any bubble mailer you may send as long as it’s not a large number of cards being sent. And as you can see, the shipping (tracking IS included!) comes to a whopping $2.71 to send to Canada. Fill out your customs slip (make sure the weights match, if you say your package weighs 3oz, you need to say you have 3oz of cards in there. It won’t accept partial ounces as a weight on the individual cards, however. You need to say there is 1 card that weighs 3oz for it to accept, just easier that way.) and complete the payment. You are now able to print your label, and drop it off at the post office in the morning!
