It should be 3-4 days normally but can take up to 7 working days. It's generally the quickest bang for buck.

For under 4lbs only, its definitely the cheapest USPS service. So I'd be suprised if its 3-4 days as their 6-10 wkg days service is more expensive. Have you used "First-Class Mail® International Package"?

Yep - less than a week if you catch things right! Best service around.

We use that service quite a bit. Generally about 4-5 days door to door from Oregon to Melb.

I use it for business and its always between 10 days and 2 weeks, USPS dont use there own planes like BAX Global or Fed-EX if the plane is full it goes on the next and this time of year it will take longer, ask for the tracking number and track it, it may take a 4 to 5 days befour it is through international daspatch. Locky.

I use USPS standard International on most stuff from the USA. Generally 7 days to Sydney. This time of year will be longer.

If the invoice value is over AUD$ 999.00 it will attract duty.
Get the Supplier to invoice under that amount if your order is a big one.
Once duty's are payable that is normally when the headaches and delays begin.

Sorry to hijack ,
I have been looking at buying something from the US and can anyone tell me what Conus means?
I am not familiar with their abbreviations and slang.
Thanks
