Re: PSA-Postal prices are going up drastically Jan. 27

FRE international is also going up from 16,45 to 21,85 I believe it is. Gnarly.

Good news is that lower weights take the biggest hit. HIgher weights get about 15% increase which blows but thank god not as bad as the low weights.

So it means for me more to my mom and a few big boxes a year rather then buying direct. Bummer.

I was so disappointed to see this. I buy tons of things from US wahm's and it's going to be a lot harder to make small purchases if the minimum shipping is going to be so high.

The prices I have pulled are directly from the USPS site for new prices for first class package international service - retail prices. The prices in MotherMoonPads link are for commercial base which normally is Paypal or internet prices. Unless you are shipping through Etsy or have a stamps.com account (or like company) normally most people ship first class international through a retail channel.

Canada is group 1 on the table

Re: PSA-Postal prices are going up drastically Jan. 27

These prices are now matching canada! (both within canada and to the us). I've done most of my shopping in the states because honestly its cheaper to buy there and ship here than to pay shipping here. So sad!

I agree with you

But I did enjoy reading your post too..... bdhutier! So cheeky!

Yeah, a bummer - but not unexpected. It looks like the Priority Flat Rates are going up more significantly.

I don't think you will it sucks that it's going to cost that much more, but it won't stop me from buying from US wahms and mamas. It looks like it is still cheaper than our shipping within Canada mostly.

Thank you for this clarification. That definitely makes it worse for the light sort of stuff I'd be sending (at $8.55!). I do not have a business account.

I know I can always count on them to have no idea what is going on and the way they act as if me expecting them to do their job causes physical pain so the only thing to do is be a snotty as possible, well who doesn't love that? But my favorite reason they need a raise is that they have to work from 9 to 4 5 days a week and they only get an hour and a half for lunch seriously when will the abuse stop??? But they are so brave they only complain about how long the hours are 5 days a week from 9 to 4 5 days a week. They probably even complain over lunch, THAT is the level of dedication that have!! Who wouldn't want to pay extra for that kind of service?
I used to work for the Postal Service....12 hours a day, six days a week. I cared for my customers and I know very well that my coworkers did as well. I'm sorry you've had such a poor experience. I believe they do deserve a raise. Gas prices are Astronomical, and I'm surprised they haven't done it sooner as it would've made fiscal sense.
