First class international is available for up to 4 pounds (packaging weight included). Over 4 pounds and it has to go priority. Priority mail comes with tracking and insurance to prevent lost and damaged packages. If you choose the less expensive first class international option then the tracking only works accurately to my border. I am not responsible for lost or damaged items shipped first class international. I declare actual items value (based on purchased price) on customs forms so please be aware that you may have to pay custom fees to get your items. Fees vary by region. I am not responsible for these fees. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
