I have a 16mm feature on its way from the US. The seller says that transit is by "USPS Priority Mail International Large Flat Rate Box".
Could somebody explain exactly what this is?
I know one thing, it's expensive! [Smile]

Maurice,

The US Postal Service offers a few different size options with Priority Mail International flat rate boxes. The medium flat rate box costs $69 to ship to the UK. The large box will cost $90.50.
The cost advantage of these is when it comes to shipping heavy items (up to 20 lbs). The price includes tracking and insurance up to $200.00. Shipping takes 6-10 days.

Thank you, Doug.
That explains the high cost.
