One good thing about the USPS Priority Mail is the flat rate options. The rate remains the same regardless of the weight of your package as long as it fits into a Priority Envelope, Small Priority Box, Medium Priority Box or Large Priority Box. However, be informed that there are domestic and international rates for each flat-rate option.
If you decided not to use the flat-rate options, you need to take the weight and dimensions your package so you can place an order and pay online. You can also go to any Post Office to pay and ship the package.
For a totally fuzz-free shipping, you may want to consider the Click-N-Ship” option at www.USPS.com.
