Okay, since I am an newb at this stuff and I know some of you are leet, awesome people with lots of real world experience.

How does shipping things work? Because everywhere I look at shipping things overseas it keeps trying to say that even the smallest of packages would cost over $70 to ship? WHAT AM I DONG WRONGGGG? ;A;

I'm asking because my mother got me to set up a "Box of Louisiana"
for the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan auctions, but she's confessed to being worried about international shipping charges. Since the current high bidder is from Malaysia I'm unsure as to how much a box of random junk would actually cost to ship.

PS: Current total of potential money earned for charity? $45. I know it's not much, but it still feels like I'm actually accomplishing something for once.

I think it depends on the weight, location and which service you're using (super fast or normal).

It'd be normal obviously not super fast, but all the estimates I can find for things like ups and fedex are the super fast estimates.
