I don't see UPS as a viable solution... tracking or no tracking.



Never said they were affordable! Just that they can track across international borders...

One problem Matt is that you are complaining about postage to the USA and so USPS will not apply. To the best of my knowledge I cannot post a package in the UK to the USA using the USPS as the carrier and in my case would be Royal Mail or a carrier.

This was in response to pseudo's remark about UPS shipping costs and insurance. It shows that, with a different carrier, the cost is much less.
