    Maybe a stupid question, but for my wedding site, they are requesting the deposit via Fed Ex, but on the fed ex forms for international fed ex, they require Tax Id number and declaration of contents for customs - which seems weird (and scary) for a check! Is this normal or am I using the wrong form? Has anyone send a Fed Ex envelope with a check in it to Mexico?

      I would go to a Fed Ex shipping location to talk to someone in person to make sure you are doing it the right way. That would suck to have it get screwed up.

      it's illegal to courier currency across the border and sometimes they consider a check to be currency... can they accept the payment via a credit/debit card?

        Yeah the guy at Fed Ex gave me the form. Maybe I need to speak with someone else!

        yeah....i'd call your place and see if they'll accept a credit card/debit card over the phone... FedEx is also known to be not-so-reliable in Mexico...


        plus you can do what i did and use your miles credit card!

          Sometimes places have a TX or CA address where they get all their mail from. I think we sent our deposit to somewhere in Cali if I remember correctly. Any chance your site has that?

            I just fedexed documents to japan. I had to print off 3 customs forms to put in the flap. I said $1 for the value. All the stuff we fedex doesn't really have a value, so the standard is to say $1. I wouldn't know what do do about a check though.

            I'd first try to get a different payment method.
