Standard shipping is your average shipping service, not shipped quickly overnight at expensive rates, but not using slower tracked mail services either.
Many couriers refer to their standard shipping service as a standard ground service, which normally comes with a reasonable shipping time and full tracking, so both the sender and receiver can see when the package has been delivered.
Standard shipping is a cost-effective delivery option for small to large boxes. However, if your item is over 70 lbs or it is very big or long, you might need a large item courier service.
