What does APO/FPO in the exclusion list in the shipping area mean? I also changed my exclusions in my account but it is not showing up on my listings. Did I do something wrong? I want to INCLUDE Alaska/Hawaii but it's not showing up in the actual listing. Thanks!

Alaska/Hawaii are already included when you ship by USPS mail system.
Some sellers will not ship there only when they use UPS, which can be costly.

I did these exclusions when I first set up my account and not knowing what the heck I was doing I excluded the APO/FPO. Now that I know I only will sell something that I can use flat rate postage, I will include the APO/FPO. Thanks for your input! My daddy (who recently passed away) was a purple heart recipient and served in the Bushmasters in WW2 and made many beachhead landings. I am very proud of his time in the service and have always supported our troops in any way I can. Thanks for your input.

You exclude Protectorates and APO/FPO (military installations) -- for absolutely no reason. USPS serves them as well.

You are so right---and that's exactly what I did 2 seconds after I posted this question. Usually I google everything--;-)
