      While this is a very informative article. I wonder re: USPS being the cheapest carrier for small items, if my 1.20oz, 3’5″ x 4″ padded envelope cost $4.5 -$5.5 in the US, and $14.5 – $17.5 internationally to be sent.
      It’s credit card size drive that cost a customer $5
      Unbelievably unfair, and no alternatives?
