Wanting to ship a watch in its box there.
USPS priority, tracking with $200 insured: $44 seems high.
I’ve sent items to Thailand for less, does anyone know of better options?

As a Canuck, I've always ask the seller if they can ship standard USPS shipping with tracking because I'm not usually in a rush. Admittedly, during these exceptional times, there have been some delays but I just don't know if USPS priority would be any faster. Perhaps run it by the buyer?

That must be a heavy watch box, Ray. Are you shipping USPS Priority Flat Rate Box, or your own box? The flat rate ones seem to assume the worst for shipping weight, and are much more expensive internationally. Also, as per Russ' note above - I shipped two packages to Canada last month and the USPS First Class International arrived in Vancouver before the USPS Priority arrived in Toronto!
