As of today, Royal Mail postage went up quite a bit for packages. How does this affect you? In one of two ways:
- for UK residents, nothing will change (for the moment). I will continue to have free shipping to UK addresses for as long as possible - I'd like to be able to promise it forever (or at least as long as I'm in the UK), but that's not feasible. If anything changes, and I have to start charging UK shipping, I will let you know in advance.
- for International customers: the postage price (to me) for shipping one bump of fiber has gone up to £3.86/£3.90 for Europe/Rest of World. I'm sorry, but that's not an increase that I can cover, so international shipping charges will increase to £3.90 for non-UK shipments. However, there is some good news.
The good news is that the increased shipping price will not go in to effect until 1 June 2012. That gives you one entire month to buy all you want at the old shipping price (£2.50) - my loss is your gain.
