Lite and Lite X are based on flat-rate shipping rates, which means that, unlike calculated shipping where address and dimensions may factor in, you pay one fixed price for a package of the same weight and value regardless of the destination*.
*Please keep in mind that depending on the regulations in your location, import fees and duties may apply.
SHIPPING WORLDWIDE FROM JUST £9.99
forward2me Lite is our more affordable option that lets you ship your items for just £9.99 to any destination, no matter how far, without tracking. If you’d like to have a tracking number for your shipment, you can opt for our Lite X option which will let you keep tabs on your package as it leaves our warehouse and makes its way to you.
We know what you're going to ask next. "When will I get my package?" Short answer: delivery time for both services is up to 10 days. Long answer: it may depend on the destination and although we say 10 days just to be sure, you could be getting your shipment within only 3 days for Europe or 5 days to North and South America.
*Please allow for 10 days for delivery.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Depending on the destination country and weight forward2me will pick a shipping partner of its choice.
Lite and Lite X are postal services which is why they only support lower weights. Depending on the destination country, the shipment might fly with FedEx or UPS to the nearest major hub and from there be delivered by the national postal network such as USPS.
This service is cheaper because forward2me provides the service at an operating loss in order to draw attention to its more premium services. This is the same as a supermarket treats bread and milk.
