USPS Priority Mail: Shipments over 1 lb

If you ship anything over 1 lb the package can be shipped via USPS Priority Mail service. The postage rates are determined by the weight (lbs) and the destination in the U.S. The U.S. is divided into shipping zones based on distance so the further you ship the more it will cost. For example, if you are located in Ontario and want to ship an item to Los Angeles and another item to New York; shipping the item to New York would be cheaper than shipping it to Los Angeles.
Priority Mail service includes:
  • Maximum weight 70 lbs
  • Tracking
  • Delivery anywhere within the U.S. in 2 to 4 business days
  • Chit Chats Insurance available
USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Options
