A package containing one CD set weighs somewhat less than 12 ounces.  Here are the First-Class Package International rates for the nine postal groups:
Price Group 1     $ 4.90   =Canada
Price Group 2     $ 8.00   =Mexico
Price Groups 3, 4, 5     $ 10.03   Japan, Russia, Italy etc.
Price Groups 6, 7, 8, 9     $ 9.72   India, Kenya, Egypt, Brazil etc.

Priority Mail International service is more expensive, possibly faster, and has optional insurance. Contact Kate if you would like us to ship by this service.

All potentially dutiable First-Class Package International items (regardless of weight) of less than $400 in value require customs Form 2976.  Every Priority Mail International parcel requires a customs Form 2976-A.  To complete these forms online, I must provide a contact telephone number for you.  An email address is also useful and appreciated.

Dutiable Merchandise
Any merchandise sent to another country may be subject to duty under the customs regulations of that country.  Where applicable, please expect your local postal service to ask for VAT, tariff or duty when your package is delivered.
The US government used to have a good tax/VAT/tariff/duty information site available to the public, but it is now password-protected:

I believe the correct tariff category code (HTS#) for the Barth CD set is 852340 (8523404000).  This identifies it as recorded optical media (data/sound/image).  I like to describe it as a "Theological study set" in case your country has an educational materials tax exemption.

In many countries, PayPal is a fine way to pay.  There is no service charge to pay by PayPal.  PayPal information pages for various countries are online.

This special PayPal order button is conveniently set up for you to select the shipping destination group and purchase one Dr. Karl Barth American lectures 1962 8 CD set, shipped by the United States' Post Office First-Class Package International service:
Total price by shipping destination

Military APO/FPO shipping by US Postal Service

Military Mail is charged at the domestic rate.  I recommend using Priority Mail ($5.50) for a shorter wait.

Shipping time for Military Mail is estimated at the Military Postal Service Agency web site.  Try the Mailing Info and FAQ links on this page:

I must provide a customs form with your package, so I need a contact telephone number for you.  An email address is also useful and appreciated.  If appropriate to the country where you are stationed, please expect to be charged VAT, tariff or duty when your package is delivered.
