If you want to send a package, that weighs more than 12 ounces, internationally via USPS you have several options:
- Directly take the package to USPS on 4th street where the sender engages with the window clerk on its contents and hand stamps the package.
- Or, set up an online mail account at USPS.com where they can certify the contents of the package, complete the necessary customs form, and pay for the shipping amount online (a p.card would be necessary).
If this second option is exercised, UW faculty or staff can then provide the package to UW Postal Services as the package is now in the USPS “system.” UW Postal cannot run it through its meters and thus far the USPS has rejected packages where we have done such.
A third option would be to take the international package to shipping and receiving and send it via UPS or Fed/Ex.
