Canada Post types

Let's take a closer look at the Canada post shipping types and choose the most optimal for you.

  • Priority ™ Worldwide pak - this shipping method is the fastest of all, but only one problem, it is carried out by FedEx.
  • International Parcel - Air is the most common way to send purchases from Canada by air mail. The delivery time to Europe is about 7 days, the shipment goes to the local postage service and as a consequence may cause import fees depending on your country import laws. Fast, convenient, profitable, and most optimal.
  • International Parcel - Surface - on ground delivery option. From the previous method differs only by the way of Canada Post shipping, that is, by land and sea, as a consequence, the time increases in times. The cost is a bit cheaper. The parcel also comes to your local post office. This method is convenient when saving money and not saving time.
  • Small Packet ™ - International Air - as the name suggests, the method is suitable for sending small parcels and letters by air mail. Comes to the local post office.
  • Small Packet ™ - International Surface - a way for the most patient and most thrifty buyers, small parcels and letters by land and sea. If you do not hurry and save money, it's your choice. Comes to the local post office.

Tracking of postal items from Canada is possible on our website, just enter the tracking number and click the “TRACK” button.

Generally, Canada Post does not differ by mega cheap prices for its services, apparently not affected by too advanced Internet commerce, compared to a neighbor of the United States, and low competition. But anyway, it works stably, quickly and reliably, and as long as the parcel does not reach the territory of the Russian Federation, one can not worry about it. Yes, I almost forgot, I strongly recommend that you insure all the items, the costs are minimal, and risks, though not immediately, but cover!
