Basically due to rising costs of postage I decided to do a review of our postage rates. Safe to say after this we'll personally not be able to do free postage on heavier items any longer : ( Anyway yes I thought this might be useful to someone as it's sometimes tricky to get all the rates easily when making postage and packing calculations. 

I have also had my suggestion that the nearly  three year old postage limit of £4 on a basic tracked service be raised sent to there admin department. If you message them with a similar same suggestion (and like this guide) hopefully sellers both private and business wont have to lose money on postage and packing in the future.

Please note this is not a comprehensive guide but it does cover the most commonly used services.

Thank you kindly for reading
