Saving On Your Postage Cost For Some Items

O.K. We have been trial running a postage idea that has now been proved to save money

If you are one of those sellers that will put as much as possible in to a small envelope to save money on postage then this is for you.!

We have found that it is more beneficial to put your items in to a slightly bigger envelope to make your package flatter, if you can keep your package under 25mm then you will pay less for postage under there new pricing plan.

this means that instead of putting lots of stuff in to a small envelope spend a little extra on a slightly bigger envelope and spread the items out to reduce your postage cost by up to £1.00

We sent the same items to the same address in five different size envelopes and the cost was as follows

  • Envelope Size A/000 = £1.65 to post
  • Envelope Size B/00 = £1.65 to post
  • Envelope Size C/0 = £1.27 to post
  • Envelope Size D/1 = £1.27 to post
  • Envelope Size E/2 = £0.65 to post

PLEASE NOTE THAT AS OF THE 1st APRIL THE COST OF POSTAGE WITH ROYAL MAIL WENT UP SO THE ABOVE FIGURES ARE BASSED ON THE OLD RATE EACH ONE WILL NOW COST SLIGHTLY MORE BUT THE PRINCABLE REMAINS THE SAME.

Whilst we agree that by using a bigger envelope you will pay more for it our postal test shows that you can in fact save more than you will spend and as the old saying goes Look After The Penneys And The Pounds Will Look After Themselves.

if you are sending thicker items than 25mm then we have not yet found the best way for doing this but we are currently trying out a new method so watch out for our next guide
