    Linda, I received an email from stamps.com:

    Stamps.com customers can immediately use the new service by simply selecting “First-Class Mail International Large Envelope/Flats” as the mail service inside the platform.

    They have worked out a deal with usps to allow the use of international envelopes for first class shipping of merchandise. Problem is, it's still not offered as an option on checkout to my customers. Any ideas?

    I think there is a bit of confusion here. Stamps.com has contracted a "Freight consolidator" for the service. The article attached below is from ShipStation but since Stamps.com owns ShipStation, the article is from Stamps.com. The service is independent of any USPS quote servers.

    The label printed will NOT be to the intended customer, it will be addressed to a processing facility which will then relabel it.

    Any label created through ShipStation that meets the following criteria will be a Global Advantage Program (GAP) label:

    • Service = USPS First Class Mail Int'l
    • Package type = Large Envelope/Flat
    • Package Contents = anything other than Documents

    The labels generated for these shipments will be domestic labels that direct the packages to the nearest international sorting facility, where the packages will be relabeled and forwarded to their final, international destination.
    Here is an example of what the label provided through ShipStation will look like (the customer name, company, province, and country code are provided on the bottom right of the label):

    Thanks Rick. I am asking stamps.com to clarify this for me.

    I'm still having problems. I'm now set up to use the freight forwarding with stamps.com. Package goes to US forwarder who ships it to the international addressee. Significantly less than usps rates. However, international customers aren't able to choose the large envelope/flat option at checkout. Is there a workaround for this?

    For International Large Envelopes, you have to force the value to 0.00 ...

    Code:
          $submission_value = ($insurable_value > $max_usps_allowed_price) ? $max_usps_allowed_price : $insurable_value;
    
     // Force $0.00 - on Intrenational       
    $submission_value = 0;

    Around line 1241 of the USPS shipping module ...

    NOTE: forcing the value to 0.00 means that it cannot quote with insurance ...
