The other biggest thing to remember is; you're paying postage twice.
Once from the US border to the border of the other country.
Then postage from the border to the delivery address.
This is for all countries.
Since the payment for the second leg of the journey is pretty indirect, you end up with market inefficiencies like shipping in some cases from the us to Canada being cheaper than Canada to Canada, and every Chinese “epacket” you buy from aliexpress...

Mostly. Kinda sorta. When Canada, for example, raises it's postage rates, the US to Canada rates also increases.
