Can I use Regional Rate Boxes for International Shipments?
No. For multiple reasons:
- Regional Rate Box prices are only available to mailers with agreements with the Postal Service, and in those cases, those mailers already have access to Priority Mail International Regional Rate Boxes.
- USPS will likely refuse to deliver an international shipment when using a Regional Rate Box. They’re a business, and they generally won’t tolerate mailers trying to game the system.
Integrating with EasyPost gives you access to Commercial Plus Pricing, which offers discounted rates for all international shipments. It's a much easier way to cut your international shipping bills without trying to outsmart the United States Postal Service.
