    Why is International Shipping so much

    Wow I went to ship a 2 packages to Australia and one was less than 5 ounces had 5 cards in it and it cost me $12.75 another had 1 card in it and it cost me $6.25 holy cow I dont think I will be shipping International anymore with those prices. I dont understand the reason for such a big increase. So if you are thinking of trading International get ready for the BIG price hike.

    I agree with Cavsfan, think I'm done with international shipping

    I think it is because the USPS is including tracking in everthing now...

    I myself have stopped shipping internationally due to prices and some countries mailing systems scare me.

    Not for International all you can get is signature and I wouldnt want to see what that cost.

    If you ship alot internationally I highly recommend stamps.com. A 1 ounce envelope costs $2.25 and if you insure it, it still will be cheaper than ebay

    No they just want more money for their failing business. If people keep supporting measures that will increase the costs of shipping then the price of everything including domestic shipping will continue to go through the roof.

    Ebay I dont think does international shipping I went to the post offfice so I have no idea why it would be so cheap on stamps.com thats thru the post office correct? I did find this and it says stamps.com is the same as going to the post office so Im not sure how you are shipping packages for $2.25 international?

    the reason why ebay is so much more is they only have first class package as an option while stamps.com they have first class large envelope rate so if its under an inch thick it can be shipped in this option
