i will give you the best free hint, never ever use fed-ex to ship to philippines, their customs people will flag it and charge you 10 dollars a day storage just because they know they can do it, they will make up total crap reason why they did it. they know you must then create a fed-ex account and pay the fee, and 100 dollars is if your lucky and catch it fast.

+Doris C - "... helping for moves." +MrIHADANACCOUNT is correct. I understand you may not be aware, but it is illegal to use USPS Priority boxes for that. Pickup any USPS Box and read the notice. It may be worded slightly different from one box to another but basically it says: "This box remains the property of USPS and is provided for use in shipping by USPS Priority. Any other use is prohibited and is punishable by fine or imprisonment". (Well, something like that). And: "Any other use is prohibited", includes using them for moving, wrapping them in paper and using them to ship by FedEx or another carrier, or anything else you can think of that is not shipping by USPS Priority. You might not have known it, or you might think it's not likely they'd find out, but if you happen to be the one they catch, it won't end well.

+Doris C - I'm sorry to hear of your bad experience shipping gifts to your nephew. I don't know what shipping service you used, but shipping by USPS Priority Mail includes tracking and $50 or $100 of insurance per box. This is included on all packages for no extra charge. I don't know if it's too late to file a claim, but you should check out if you can still file a claim. In any case, keep it in mind next time you ship, if the package doesn't arrive, file a claim right away. UPS also includes tracking and $100 of insurance per box. I'm not sure about FedEx.

Don’t listen to this person, he does not know what he’s talking about. A small box is not the same as a small flat rate box. A large flat rate box is not the same as a regional rate box. Regional rate is not flat rate. I find it amazing that people can be so uninformed and act like they have all the answers.

Do not use Fed Ex drop boxes if they lose or steal your package , they will deny you used the drop box ! I sent a pistol back to Ruger because something inside the new pistol I bought from Ruger broke after being fired only 2 times ! I expected better from Ruger and Fed Ex but Company’s like Ruger got to big to be honest and will sell junk pistols just to get richer don’t buy Ruger stocks ! I intend to expose them and Fed Ex !

They're getting overpaid to shuffle paper and boxes anyways.
C Man (2 months ago)
They charge you mostly for really heavy weight and also if a box is really big but light weight, because both those boxes will overweight/won't fit on the regular sort belt. So those boxes have to be pushed to their own special belt to get sorted in a separate part of the building and then brought to the destinated loading trailer by trolly carts. So there's a lot more work involved in moving those types of boxes. Also the extra money you pay for 2 and some 3 day packages is for jet fuel.

Use UPS only if you want your package smashed and destroyed. They couldn't care less about you or your package and sell garbage insurance that Crawford and Company denies, denies, denies.

really, but I don't know if this can work from my area, I have package, I plan to ship to syria through any nearby country in the east to a family that sent a cry for help days back to my organization for peace I just founded, so I need any means possible financially that I can handle even with all I have left of the funds I started the organization with.

the flat rate boxes are great if you're shipping something relatively heavy, but if what you're shipping is light weight, use a plain box (or an imprinted box wrapped in brown paper) and ship it first class. the light weight items are often cheaper to ship first class than priority mail, and the service levels, priority mail versus first class, are pretty much the same thing. also, the difference in cost between first class and parcel post (fourth class) is usually no more than a nickel or ten cents for light weight items so you might as well send via first class. i know this because i used to sell chocolates on ebay and became familiar with first class versus priority mail versus parcel post shipping.
