New shipping rates go in to effect on Monday Jan 28 2013 here in the good ole US of Frackin A

International first class is going up 9%- the good news Tracking will be available -rolling out thru the year. Canada first and looks like immediate..
Priority Mail is increasing 15%- yes that's fifteen- the biggest increase I have seen in the 10 plus years selling online..
The fee increases and changes are more of a pain here in the US--
where ebay wont have parcel online labels till March a HUGE inconvenience-- yet were still required to have our items uploaded tracking in 24hrs to be a TRS.. - The incompetence of Ebay shines thru again..
heres a link to the USPS site
http://about.usps.com/postal-bulletin/2012/pb22352/html/kit.htm

just an FYI to my international and non US fans and friends..

From the US to Canada the basic package fee has increased about $2.00- to 4.00 for about 5 oz first class one figure shipped- Ouch but that is now trackable.. on the upside..
sorry Canada.. shipping just got pricey. WHat used to corst about $4.oo now costs minimum 7.30

The US price increase doesn't surprise me. The USPS has been on the verge of bankruptcy for a while.
Just wait, the UK is next. The woman that ran Canada Post when the prices started going up. Now runs UK Postal Service!

UK rates to overseas aren't too bad at the moment even after a small increase last year but we got hammered in the UK last year on our small parcel prices within the UK going up quite considerably.

I guess we can expect more increases then if she has taken over up yours Smile
