Quick Fixes to Help Save You Money When Shipping From the USA
What are the Rates for Shipping to Japan from the USA?
MyUS is pleased to offer its members discounted shipping rates to Japan, thanks to our free package consolidation services and exclusive partnerships with FedEx, DHL, USPS and UPS.
To find out how much it will cost to ship specific items to Japan, use our shipping cost estimator. Your shipping charges will vary depending on:
- Your MyUS membership level
- If express shipping is selected
- How many items you are consolidating into one package
- How much your package weighs
(MyUS determines international shipping charges based on package weight ONLY, unlike other consolidation companies or freight forwarders who base the price on weight AND the size and shape of the package. This straightforward pricing prevents surprise shipping costs when your package is larger in size than expected.** )
When you become a MyUS member, you have access to a real-time shipping calculator that shows you exact costs, and gives side-by-side comparisons of which shipping options will be the cheapest or fastest ways to ship your item to Japan.
Your Choice at Global Carriers
MyUS gives their members the opportunity to pick a preferred global carrier or to use the least expensive option. The typical time it takes to ship a package can change based on what carrier you decide to use.
- Small Pack Saver
- Budget Economy
- Budget Express
Nothing is Too Big!
Stop over paying for international shipping, MyUS shipping prices are based on weight and NOT size of the package.** This helps members save money with every package shipped!
