    Cheapest way to send a parcel to the USA 3rd Sep 08 at 4:52 PM
    A lady in the USA bought something from me by ebay. Before the auction she asked how much shipping would be. I said I didn't know as I've never shipped abroad before. I said the parcel weighed 3.1kg, and she said Royal Mail surface mail was the cheapest costing £16.81. I checked the RM website and found this was correct so she paid £16.81 postage.

    Just been to the Post Office and the Postmaster said the website is wrong as Royal Mail surface mail only goes up to 2kg. Anything over 2kg has to go by Parcel Force World Wide and costs £42.39.

    The lady won't pay this much. Does anyone know of a cheaper way to send it?

    It weighs 3.1kg and the dimensions are 30cm x 22cm x 12cm.
    Here I go again on my own....
