I have a bundle of boys clothes ending at 12 today and I have 2 people asking how much to send to Ireland and Slovenia! I have no idea how to work this out accurately.

The parcel is roughly 24cm length, 15cm wide adn 10cm high and weighs about 3.6kg without packaging. I was going to parcel it in plastic and then wrap in brown paper rather than sending it in a box and had planned to send recorded delivery in the UK but hadn't thought about overseas buyers (stupid I know but I don't sell much).

How do I find an accurate price?
Thanks so much

weigh it with the packaging and then look it up on the royal mail website. Look for signed for options or insurance if you want that bit. Oh and check which part of ireland.

Agree. If you go to royal mail website you can punch in teh details of package and destimation.

Don't forget to check what the insurance cover is, whether it is appropriate and make sure the buyer knows what level of insurance is provided with your service.

From looking on the post office wesbite I think it will be about £25 to send overseas, does that sound right?? sounds bloody expsensive to me but I think I have done it right.

I get £18.76 airmail printed papers...but this isn't printed papers.

3.6Kg is quite heavy....
