Foreign Postage Rates
Charges are calculated on whole pounds. For example, 2 pounds 3 ounces would be charged for 4 pounds.
The first pound for Zone 5 (Belgium and Sweden) is $44.00
The first pound for zone 10 (Australia) is $47.00
The first pound for zone 11 (Great Britain) is $49.00
The first pound for zone 16 and 17 (Germany and Netherlands) is $41.00
Each additional pound is charged slightly more than $3.00 up to a total of 66 pounds.
For calculation purposes, 1 pound = 16 ounces in the clumsy English system.
Book weights are:
Small Conifers for Small Gardens = 1 pound, 4 ounces
Gone But Not Forgotten = 1 pound, 9 ounces
Special Conifers For Special Gardens: Volume One = 0 pounds, 15 ounces
Special Conifers For Special Gardens: Volume Two = 1 pound, 5 ounces
Special Conifers For Special Gardens: Volume Three = 1 pound, 1 ounce
To calculate the shipping charge, add up the pounds and ounces for all of the books in your order. Convert the ounces to pounds (divide by 16) and add those pounds to the pound total. The left over ounces would then count as 1 additional pound.
Select your first pound cost from the information above, add $3.00 U.S. for each pound additional from your calculations. Email me your order for verification.
The DVD's and the Index and the box add an insignificant amount of weight to an order and need not be calculated in the postage fee.
After verification, I suggest you use PayPal to make your payment. It will cost a bit extra for their fees but PayPal will take care of all currency conversions and it is much safer than trying to send cash and considerably cheaper than a wire transfer. ($1.50/book and $.50 per DVD)
1 copy of Special Conifers For Special Gardens: Volume One = 0 pounds, 15 ounces
1 copy of Special Conifers For Special Gardens: Volume Two = 1 pound, 5 ounces
1 copy of Special Conifers For Special Gardens: Volume Three = 1 pound, 1 ounce
3 DVD's = no weight
3 books with a total weight of 2 pounds, 21 ounces. That equals 3 pound and 5 ounces for a shipping fee based upon 4 pounds.
For Germany that would come to $41.00 plus $9.00 for the additional 3 pounds. A total of $50.00 for shipping the three books.
The PayPal fee would equal $4.50 for the books and $1.50 for the DVD's.
The three pictures below are screen captured from the USPS web site showing their rates. Click on each to enlarge. The Canadian zones are confusing to me and I will need to run each order by the post office to determine the exact charges.
