JAN 2015 Update

On Jan 17, 2016, the USPS has raised their shipping rates a couple of weeks ago this month.  The average increase was 9.5% !

I am in the process of updating all of the shipping amounts for each item. IT will take a little time.  If you buy an item with an incorrect shipping amount, I will tell you the difference. Of course since the increases are in terms of percentages, it is the International shipping that was hit the hardest.

Rate Increase Highlights

  • The average shipping price rises 9.5% from $5.02 to $5.50.
  • Priority Mail rises an average of 9.8%.
  • Priority Mail Express rises an average of 15.6%.
  • The USPS discontinues Priority Mail Express Flat Rate boxes.
  • First-Class Package Service rises an average of 12.8%. But there is good news after January 17: The maximum weight for First-Class Package increases from 12.99 oz to 15.99 oz. Also, the rate for First-Class Packages under 8 oz. is a flat $2.60, which simplifies lightweight package pricing.
  • Standard Post is now called Retail Ground, with an average increase of 10%.
