USPS Price Increase (especially out of the country)

I just wanted to make everyone aware of this. I just got back from the post office a few minutes ago and what used to cost $10-12 to ship a jersey to Canada now costs $23-27. I shipped two small boxes to Canada and my total was $50. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up in the US that the price more than doubled. I was shocked. Apparently prices went up Sunday.

I'm lucky I just picked up a jersey from California on Friday and they only charged me $5 shipping but this is definitely going to suck for future purchases :(

This sucks for me even more. I've already had a hard enough time justifying shipping to Canada being I got screwed on few transactions, one in the amount of oh $500. It's hard enough to sell something and get top dollar for it, especially if you have to tack on extra with shipping. Between this increase and a couple of bad buyers up north I'll probably all but can any international sales unless I have done business with a person in the past, and that sucks because that closes a huge market to hockey jerseys.

thats why you ship in an envilope.. im in canada and my friend shipped me one,, only cost 10 bucks,,he also shipped a box,, it was 15.00

And now the prices went up, an envelope would suffice for one jersey. I used to be able to ship 4-5 jerseys total broken down over two boxes for $25 max. Now one box of 2 jerseys costs me $25 minimum.

That sucks. Although it's matching what I'm used to sending to the States. Just a small bubble envelope costs me roughly $25 with tracking every time. Definitely a shame given so many Americans are already reluctant to ship here.

Are you guys using paypal shipping? You can use it even without somebody sending you a payment and papal gives you a discount on the rate with certain services.

When I ship expedited parcel to the US using it the cost is always around $15. If I were to go to a retail location it would be about $5-$10 more.

Sometimes a box has to be used, I use a normal small brown box under 36 inches, for a box weighing 4lbs or less it would cost about $12. But now after the price increase this past sunday, a small little brown box or bubble envelope is no longer $10, its around $20 for the cheapest method. I'm just going by what i was told today, and had to pay. What cost me $23 last week cost me $47.50 today. USPS said its because UPS and FedEx charge a lot for international shipping so USPS was missing out.

And dont worry TMLFAN, your jersey is going out as soon as those bubble mailers arrive :thumbsup:

. That's crazy. I think I might use a service to get a physical US address. It works out to about $5/package (or less) or you can pay monthly. I might even try to split a an address with a fellow collector.

yep...just sold a jersey and watch on ebay...paid 11.30 for medium flat(US) instead of 10.85...i think USPS gave a heads up like 5 months ago...as if i would remember that...smh

Its funny you say that, i remember the same thing. In fact i read it about 3 weeks ago but i did not read anything about the major international charge increase. Thats what caught me so off guard.
