I recently sold a watch internationally to a neighbor to our north (I'm in the USA). Upon preparing the USPS international shipping label on line you are required to fill out customs form 2976-E; fine, understandable. On this form you are to fill out what the item ship is and the value. To my dismay, when I printed the postage / shipping label, it contained the customs form with the item and value amount clearly advertised right there on the outside of the box. This just screams STEAL ME!!! How stupid is this?
I rarely ship things and am wondering if there is a way around this. I already am fairly distrustful of the USPS and people who steal packages.
