That’s not so bad :slight_smile: Most of mine go as large letters. I always dread this time of year since that year when they put the small parcels up by 40p!!!

Thanks I’ve been afraid to look! Most of mine are small parcel and I was sure it was going to go up at least to £3.50 so just an extra 5p is not so bad!!!

Most of my parcels can go 2nd class small parcel so it’s not too drastic but as @DewDropCrafts says I did expect it to be more than 5p when I first saw this mentioned.

International prices look to have increased by 10p across the board, with the exception of international large letter rates which have not changed.

It could be a lot worse! :slight_smile:

Thanks for the reminder, I keep a RM printout of all prices pinned on my board, I’ll pop a note on the bottom of it as a reminder to reprint it at the end of March :slight_smile:

Thanks for the info. Could be worse but I’m just thinking about having to go through every single listing and change the pricing Urgh.

Actually I just remembered that there is a bulk edit for postage :slightlgrinning:
However the prices are slightly different if you use online postage or visit the PO. I think it’s about 5p more expensive to queue in the PO??!!

Need to bump this in case like me you’ve not got round to upping your postage for the new rates effective from anything you will be posting from now on.
Just off to bulk edit my rates.
