Subject to applicable weight and size limits, any article that is otherwise acceptable and not prohibited by the Postal Service or the country of destination may be mailed at the First-Class Package International Service price. The maximum value cannot exceed $400. Items exceeding $400 must be mailed using Global Express Guaranteed service, Priority Mail Express International service, or Priority Mail International service (other than the Priority Mail International Flat Rate Envelopes or Small Flat Rate Priced Boxes).
Electronic USPS Delivery Confirmation International service — abbreviated E-USPS DELCON INTL — is an optional service available for First-Class Package International Service items to select destination countries at no charge. Tracking information includes the date and time an article was delivered or, if delivery was attempted but not completed, the date and time of the delivery attempt. The sender can check delivery status by going to and clicking on the “Track & Confirm” feature.
Electronic USPS Delivery Confirmation International service is available only electronically by using USPS-approved PC Postage vendors, Click-N-Ship, a USPS meter label solution, Webtools, and Global Shipping Software (GSS) or other USPS-approved software. The service is available only to the countries listed in Exhibit 252.22:
Mailers may pay for Electronic USPS Delivery Confirmation International items by using postage validation imprinter (PVI) labels, postage meter imprint, USPS-approved PC Postage, Click-N-Ship postage, or permit imprint.
Only items paid with USPS-approved PC Postage (with the exception of Click-N-Ship service), permit imprint, or a USPS meter label solution are eligible for the applicable Commercial Base or Commercial Plus price for the postage portion of the mailpiece. Customers using a USPS meter label solution to print shipping labels must apply postage from a meter to be eligible for Commercial Base or Commercial Plus prices. Electronically generated customs forms that are not generated with PC Postage, a permit imprint, or a USPS meter label solution (for example, forms electronically generated by Webtools or Click-N-Ship service) are charged the retail price.
First-Class Package International Service items always require a fully completed PS Form 2976, Customs Declaration CN 22 — Sender’s Declaration.
For First-Class Package International Service items, return receipt service is available for purchase only for items that use Registered Mail service to certain destinations — see the Individual Country Listings for availability, and see 340 for preparation procedures.
