Just been to post office and it cost me £4.30 to post an item, The post office is in the next village which is a car ride away, or bus ride which would add another £2 to the cost.
i was totally peed off as i only charge £3.50 and this is recorded, I know my bangle boxes are to thick and will need to go via small package but the pendant boxes usually manage to go large letter.
I’m wondering if it would put people off if i send pendants/Necklaces out in a gift pouch and offer boxes as an extra sale. If i send in a gift pouch they will go 1st recorded for £2.03, I would take this up to £2.50 to help towards the cost of getting to the PO. and packaging used.
I have started to change some of the postal prices to £4.95 on the more expensive items as i can send by courrior for this amount and they are insured. so they can stay gift boxed.
