Notes on International Shipping

Before sending your first international shipments, make sure to do your research. There can be nuances for these shipments as they pass through various customs checkpoints in different countries with different methods for handling. 

Be aware that there are delivery limitations with Chit Chats International Tracked to PO Boxes addressed to Great Britain. Service to such an address is only available via the DDU option at this time. 

Prohibited Items

You should know that there are items that Chit Chats is unable to ship and other items that specific countries do not allow the import of. Additionally, our partner carriers for international shipments have set their own standards for prohibited and restricted items based on their transport methods.

Address Formatting

Each country has their own set of rules for how you should format a delivery address. Buying postage in your Chit Chats account eliminates much of the guesswork but it’s best to double-check the address with your recipient and the formatting rules in the destination country.

International Customs

Shipments bound for international destinations may be subject to customs inspections, customs duties and taxes. For example, shipments to Australia which exceed $1000 AUD may require formal customs clearance which is subject to additional fees. Some destinations may also require you to provide additional customs information such as a CN22 form. 

All Chit Chats International Tracked and Asendia shipments are considered as merchandise on customs declarations and are not suitable postage options for gifts. If you wish to send a gift to an international recipient, we recommend using one of our USPS International postage options.

Tracking & Delivery

You can track your shipment on our tracking portal using your shipment ID or carrier tracking number on the carrier's tracking page. Our international partner carriers APC and Asendia also provide a secondary tracking number which can be used to track your shipment on the tracking page for the postal operator in the destination country (see above table). Find more helpful resources for tracking your international shipments here.

If there is a complication with the delivery of your shipment, the carrier in the destination country may try to contact the recipient by phone number to confirm any details required for delivery or to notify of any outstanding duties or taxes.

Returns

Due to the complicated nature of transporting international return shipments, return service is only available for our USPS International postage options.
