Fyi that usps shipping increasing again in june 2019.
4

Just be advised that the USPS will be AGAIN changing ship rates for Dimensional Box Sizes and weight on larger Parcel and Priority Mailing boxes. Rate increase could be quite substantial as they are changing the number of the divisor they use, making packages more costly to ship.

This is taking place, changing in June.

Be prepared to update your shipping charges if you are not using calculated costs (and Hope that Bonanza updates their calculator to accommodate yet ANOTHER Postage Increase).

That is All.

Gone are my days of shipping heavy or big items…unless the dollars sold make it worth it, although I do still have some stuff left in my booth that fit this picture that I am waiting to sell.

Just read on Ecommercebytes " The rate for one pound 12×12×8 is $9.30 today, but beginning June 23rd that same box jumps to $31.31. A 12×12×12 box jumps from $9.30 to $46.60. This could be a killer for lots of sellers, big or small. We cannot afford to eat this amount of money on shipping. "

Packages are effected if over a cubic foot (1728). Determine the cubic foot by multiplying length x width x height of the package. If the package is over 1728, you divide that number by 166. Whichever one is higher (dimensional weight vs. package weight) is the one USPS will use to calculate the shipping costs.

PO is simply destroying eCommerce with all these price increases. People get used to FREE Ship but price is then buried in the item somewhere or you pay a yearly subscribe like Prime and think you are getting Free Ship. PO needs to start charging CHINA sellers REAL COSTS too.

AMZ is trying to get their own delivery service so they are not held hostage by PO frequent increases. Otherwise, their LARGE boxes are going to force increases on items or Prime membership (so it ships Free). Ship costs are upfront when you join Prime Remember. It is NOT Free

I was in my local Post Office today & asked the clerk about this. She had no idea what I was talking about. Told her it goes into effect on June 23! She was “Like, great”. lol

The drone workers at the PO dont have a clue. The computer tells them what to charge so they dont need to know.
