International Economy

When cost is more important than speed for sending a parcel overseas, choose International Economy.

International Economy has a target delivery of 10 to 25 days to 220 destinations worldwide.

The required postage is based on the weight of the parcel and charged in 10g increments, so you only pay for what it weighs.

You can send parcels by International Economy to PO Boxes and rural areas for no extra cost. Use the Rate Finder for more details on the options available and the associated cost to send your parcel. If your parcel does not match the dimensions specified, another service maybe more applicable.
