Thanks for explaining Michael. Just to clear things further I have also tried to explain:
I always use Royal Mail for parcels sent to any worldwide detination. Royal Mail is our standard postal service here in England. The parcels get passed on to the standard postal service in the destination country which helps ease parcels through without delays. Usual delivery times are 5 to 7 days long distance (USA, Japan, Australia etc.) and 3 to 5 days to Europe.
Please note that I have 10 years experience of shipping shoes from England all over the world I have found this the best service.
FedEx, UPS and other courriers often require far more detailed paperwork which causes customs to hold the parcels for longer which also results in extra admin costs etc.
