How to enter Canada Price Zone Codes for USPS Priority Mail International

UPDATED: 19 February 2016

Effective May 2015, USPS® Priority Mail International® mail sent to Canada is based on eight price zones (1 through 8). Due to this change, the Int Priority - Env/Pkg selection has been split:

  1. Env/Pkg CA - shipments to Canada
  2. Env/Pkg AOC - shipments to All Other Countries
    When selecting Env/Pkg CA the meter will ask for the single-digit price zone (1 through 8).
