I have to send a package to Australia. I don't know the exact weight yet, but i'm thinking it'll be no heavier than 10 pounds.

What's the cheapest way to ship it..?

Thanks.

Did you try using the international calculaltor at the USPS site to get an estimate?

DO NOT use UPS to ship it unless it's an expensive item that you would be devistated if it were lost. They will charge the recipient a $35 brokerage fee on top of whatever customs charges. Fed Ex does the same thing.

The PO is the best way to go for international shipments.

Related to Troy's point, the customs limits in Australia vary depending on whether goods are sent by post or courier. If what you're sending is reasonably pricey, post is the way to go.

The limits before GST kick in are A$250 for courier (eg UPS, Fedex) and A$1000 for post.
