The sender can use a USPS Click-N-Ship tool on the USPS website. This tool allows to fill in all the necessary data and the system will automatically choose the proper customs form. The sender can then print the completed form. If the Click-N-Ship option is unavailable because the international service does not support this option, the sender can generate the form and print it out on the same webpage.
