And, now, what we've all been dreading.


INTERNATIONAL  SHIPPING



It's expensive. Really expensive. I'm sorry about that. If it were up to me, it would be free.

To help you figure out if it's worth it to buy a zine or zines and have them shipped internationally:
  1. Shipping to Canada or Mexico--pretty darned expensive, but for some people, not prohibitively so. And easy to figure out in the charts linked below.
  2. Shipping to the UK and Europe -- lighter packages are affordable, sort of. Otherwise, please check the charts in the links below to decide.
  3. TRUST ME, you really want to check out the charts first.

Price list  -- Postage price rates. Only retail rates apply; the lists go from most expensive rate to cheapest. The rates that can be used for fanzines are Priority Express International, Priority International (Priority International Canada), First Class Package International (up to 3.5-4 pounds, generally). In most rate categories, you will need the Country Group number to determine your postage price.

PRICE LIST


Country Group Number -- You will need this information to help find the correct price column for the postage rate you want to use. Many countries, like Germany, have a different Country Group number for each postage rate: one for Priority Express, one for Priority and one for First Rate Package. This chart also shows you the weight limit for each postal rate. (I.e. 3.5 - 4 pound limit for First Class Package to many destinations.)

COUNTRY GROUP NUMBERS


SOME BALL PARK FIGURES

Most fanzines on average weigh 1 pound each. They are usually 8.5 x 11 inches and can be anywhere from 1/4 inch to 2.5 inches thick.

  • Zines up to about 3/4 inches will fit in a Flat Rate Envelope--with thinner zines, maybe 2 zines will fit.
  • A Priority Mail International Medium Flat Rate Box is a good choice, in terms of size, for multiple fanzines, but Priority Mail isn't inexpensive.

Just as an example: First Class Package International (the cheapest rate) to Great Britain/N Ireland will cost

  • $14.00 (USD) for up to 0.5 lbs (8 ounces)
  • $23.50 for 9 oz up to 2 lbs
  • $35.75 for over 2 lbs up to 3lbs
  • $51.50 for over 3 lbs up to 4 lbs.

A Priority Mail International Flat Rate:

  • Envelope (1-2 zines at most): $34.25
  • Medium Flat Rate Box (3-5 zines, more if some are digest sized, i.e. half-page): $69.00


PayPal is set up to charge Priority International.

I will happily figure out First Class Package shipping if it's an option, but it helps if you take a quick look at the rates in general and decide if you want to pay the shipping to destinations outside the US.
I'm sorry--I don't mean to scare you.

Thank you!
Jean
