How to ship this item to AK
Sold a toy which is in an open box. By open, I mean the manufacturer doesn’t completely enclose the box so this animated toy can perform (move, speak, sing).
The box itself is about 15x14x8 and with the 2.1 pound weight would cost $16.45 Priority Mail to the PO Box in AK, but if it goes up to just 15x15x9, the price increases to over $50. In other words, that small increase would make it cheaper to send 3 as-is than one in a slightly larger box.
Sending by USPS Retail Ground at the post office (this is not even an option for an online-printed label) wouldn’t be much better, about $49.
If it goes a bit larger, it jumps to over $71.
Is there any practical way to send it for around the $16 price?
