I discovered with excitement a post describing ISAL M-bags to ship a large amount of books abroad from the US. However when looking at the USPS documentation indicated in the same post, ISAL M-bags figure in the "Commercial prices" rather than the "retail prices". So could someone confirm that ISAL M-bags are available for individuals?
The USPS offices I phoned in NYC did not know about these ISAL M-bags, or suggested it was for businesses and not available for individuals, and others said only airmail M-bag were available and ISAL M-bags were discontinued. If ISAL M-bags are indeed available for individuals, does anyone know of a USPS office in NYC which actually knows about this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
- In general USPS officers have no clues what ISAL M-bags are exactly, and will give different answers in each different branches (even branch managers)
- From what I could gather from the multiple different explanations, this service exists in theory, but is not available because of the latest update of the USPS software used in branches
