Need a customs form sending PWE to Canada?
I sold a few low end cards and Im shipping them in a PWE for the first time. Do you need to fill out a customs form sending those to canada?

I am in a similar situation. Please tell me about your method of shipping (toploader? any extra protection?) and how much postage you will pay for.

Nope, I do it all the time. Just stick on 2 forever stamps and throw it in the mailbox and it's good Togo!
The way I send it is in a top loaders, team bag than I use my 60lb card stock, fold it like a letter tape the card to the middle of it and close it up. The card stock adds thickness to it for a bit of extra protection.
You can also choose non machinable pwe but you have to bring it to the post office and it costs 0.20 more

DnJcards, do you do this for international shipments, or just domestic? I used to ship domestic via PWE on eBay, but needed the tracking information. I guess I could have slapped on a delivery confirmation note. I am going to need a new way of doing business if prices really are jumping for International USPS First Class on January 27.

From my understanding, they are changing USPS First Class International to be called USPS International Packages. This is the one that for 3 oz goes from $3.30 for postage to $6.30 or somerthing close to that. I think this may even be a trackable service, but I can't quite tell.
I think there may be a way to send it that would be close to the $3.30 price, but we'll see what options eBay/Paypal allow.

The first question they ask me when I go to the USPS retail window is "are the contents correspondence only, or is there anything else?" If I say correspondence they accept no problem. If I say it contains trading cards, they make me fill out a customs form.Hidden Content

I am preparing a Sticky right now for Luc on how to use a Re-Inforced PWE, with photos and all steps, even where to buy 80 Security PWE's for $1.00.
It will be on here at some point today.
