How Can MyUS Save Me Money on International Shipping?
MyUS works hard to offer its members the best shipping rates to Iraq, and here is how we do it:
- We Consolidate Your Purchases for Free. All MyUS members receive our Free Premium Package Consolidation Service, where we’ll combine all your purchases into one efficiently packed box. This can save you up to 80% on shipping instead of shipping items individually.
- We Offer Discounted Rates with FedEx, DHL & Other Couriers. We have exclusive relationships with the world’s biggest shipping companies. This lets us secure low shipping rates for our members.
- We Offer Prices Based on Package Weight (not package size, like our competitors). The MyUS TruePrice program means you pay based on what your items weigh, not the size of the shipping box. When others charge based on weight PLUS size, it can lead to unforeseen charges and cost you more in the end.
MyUS members love that we save them an average of $400 on shipping charges to Iraq each year. Just think what you can do with all the extra money you saved on shipping!
How Much Will it Cost to Ship Packages to Iraq from America?
Shipping prices depend on a few factors:
- How much the box weighs
- If you are a Basic or Premium member (Premium members receive an extra 20% shipping discount)
- How urgently you would like the package delivered
- The carrier you choose to deliver your package (FedEx, DHL or UPS, for example)
- Where the package is being delivered
