Shipping Price And Time From The USA To Greece

The price of shipping from the US to Greece may be very cheap, especially for small packages. Small packages can be sent for prices within $10 with our most affordable delivery methods (Planet Mail Economy and Planet Mail Express). We recommend these methods for the delivery of cheap goods like cosmetics (Boxycharm, Neutrogena, Sephora and more), fashion (), etc.

If you want to ship electronics like smartphones, laptops, headphones and more, for example from Amazon, Walmart, eBay…, use method by USPS, FedEx or DHL.

In case something bad happens during transport, we recommend paying for insurance so you can get a refund of the shipping costs + value in customs declaration + additional services costs. FedEx and DHL method has the insurance included in the price of the shipping.

Calculate the price of the postage and delivery time using our postage calculator.

The price of the shipping depends mainly on the dimensions of the package, its weight, and the delivery method you choose. If you don’t need the package the next week, we recommend using slower methods to minimize the costs.

We send the packages to Greece using carriers like USPS, DHL, FedEx, Aramex or Planet Mail. The delivery usually takes 5 to 10 business days with express methods and 20 to 30 business days with cheaper, more economic methods.
