All About International Shipping
Do you remember the times when we had to wait for weeks to have our letter delivered to the other side of the world? Yes, there were people waiting for weeks to connect with their loved ones!
Now, connecting with someone abroad has never been easier. Not only can we get in touch online immediately, but also we can easily send packages wherever we want.

How Much is International Shipping?
There are many players involved in international transportation. Companies like USPS offer great shipping service globally. But if you’re interested in growing your business, you need a reliable partner.
Powered by MyUS, PackageHopper gives customers easy, convenient and affordable access to international shipping from the USA to anywhere in the world. Thanks to our TruePrice™ upfront pricing system, you will get rates based on weight only*! There are no surprises with TruePrice since what you see is exactly what you get.*While 99% of shipments are calculated by weight only, TruePrice excludes oversized shipments with linear dimensions (length + width + height) greater than 80 inches (203cm).
DDU vs. DDP What Do They Mean?
DDU and DDP are important words in international trade. Here’s a quick look at their definitions:
DDU or Delivery Duty Unpaid means customs will notify the receiver once their shipment arrives and they will require the receiver to pay any costs before customs will release the shipment and send it to them.
DDP or Delivery Duty Paid means that the sender pays for the duties. In many eCommerce transactions, the seller includes these fees at checkout and collects payment for DDP directly from the customer.
PackageHopper shipping rates do not include duties and taxes, and we deliver our shipments as duty unpaid (DDU).
