Shipping Internationally

If you're a Quick Shopping Cart® merchant who ships internationally, you cannot display rates from the U.S. Postal Service (U.S.P.S.), United Parcel Service (U.P.S.) or Federal Express (FedEx). Although you can't offer these methods for international shipments, you can configure and display at checkout custom shipping methods for international shipments.

With custom shipping methods, you base your rates on a percentage of the order total or the weight of the order, and then arrange the shipment with the carrier of your choice. While custom shipping might not be as accurate as other methods, its flexibility lets you display rates for international shipments.
