Special Considerations for USPS One Balance

  • USPS labels will no longer display the transit time for Priority Mail shipments in the label banner.

  • ShippingEasy will automatically select the correct US Postal Service customs form based on your selection of service and packaging. Once printed, attach the forms to the parcel or place them in an enclosed pouch and attach that to the outside of the box.

  • Some shipments will only require one copy of the customs form (combined into your shipping label), regardless of the form type. These shipments include:

    1. Military Mail (APO, DPO, FPO, MPO), U.S. Territories, and the Freely Associated States)

    2. Australia

    3. Canada

    4. Costa Rica

  • When shipping First Class International Mail to any destination,  or Priority Mail International to Military Mail and U.S. Territories, the total value of the shipment cannot be more than $400. The value would need to be adjusted, or the order could be split depending on the package details.
