What is the difference between the two types of USPS shipping?

Print  | 

MyUS.com offers both USPS Express Mail International (EMI) and USPS Priority.

We highly recommend USPS Express Mail International (EMI) over USPS Priority. USPS EMI estimated delivery time is 7-14 business days. USPS EMI is the more reliable, expedited, traceable, and insurable service to almost every country.

USPS priority, while less expensive than EMI, is slower, less traceable and less reliable. USPS Priority estimated delivery time is 15-30 days.

Both service types have individual country limitations for weight and dimensions. Should your shipment not fall within the size or weight limitations of your selected service type, MyUS.com may split your shipment into two or more shipments to fit within the size or weight limitations of your selected service type.  If your shipment is not able to be split, then we will first attempt to ship via the alternate USPS service type then via DHL or Fedex.  USPS country specific and service type specific weight and size limitations can be found on the USPS website, or you may contact your account manager.
