Recap: International Mail

Effective with the domestic Postal Service pricing changes last May was a major redesign of international products. The redesign simplified the international product line and incorporated the names of familiar and trusted Postal Service domestic products to increase value and ease of use for customers. Here is a list of the four international (retail) products and their features:




Global Express Guaranteed® (GXG®)

Express Mail International

Priority Mail International

First-Class Mail International

Customers can now use domestic packaging supplies for international shipments, including the popular flat-rate boxes and envelopes. In addition, online tools make international mailing easier than ever by allowing customers to combine the printing of customs forms and address labels. The following postage discounts are offered to customers who purchase post­age online using Click-N-Ship service at or through authorized PC Postage® vendors:

Reminder: The discounts apply only to the postage amount, not to any fees for extra services.
