How can I save on international shipping?

I want to ship packages over to Korea, but between UPS, DHL, and FedEx, the avg. cost would be $100 for a 10-pound package! Any ideas?

  • Have you tried the US postal service? They have flat rate boxes and flat rate shipping, even international depending on the size of the box as long as it fits in the box and is under 70 lbs it ships.

  • Find someone traveling to Korea who will take your package.

  • Agree with vbruno. Look into the Post Office's flat rate boxes.

  • I have used a company called Shipito; they are a parcel forwarding company. Did some online search before I went with them and definately found them cheaper compared to Fedex, DHL, etc. My friend who lives in HK had recommended me to them and they were definately the way to go for me! Look them up, you might find a good deal too!
