USPS Price Increase For The Holidays Has Begun

October 04, 2021

New Price Increase

Hold onto your hats ladies and gentlemen! I knew this price increase was coming but I didn't realize how devastating it would be until a couple minutes ago when I printed a label that normally cost around $7 and some change is now $9 and change! 

I had thought that my pricing was safe and I wouldn't have to raise prices but I was wrong! Here are the increases that are happening posted from the usps web site 

Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express, Parcel Select Ground and USPS Retail Ground:

  • $0.75 increase for PM and PME Flat Rate Boxes and Envelopes.
  • $0.25 increase for Zones 1-4, 0-10 lbs.
  • $0.75 increase for Zones 5-9, 0-10 lbs.
  • $1.50 increase for Zones 1-4, 11-20 lbs.
  • $3.00 increase for Zones 5-9, 11-20lbs.
  • $2.50 increase for Zones 1-4, 21-70 lbs.
  • $5.00 increase for Zones 5-9, 21-70 lbs.

When I look at this chart it doesn't appear to be too bad but when it translates to actual shipping rates it looks a lot worse and Im not sure why!

I will monitor this for the next couple days and update shipping prices as needed. I apologize for not having more foresight on this. I really didn't think it would be so bad but it seems that EVERYTHING is going up in a big way including gas and groceries!

We have been lucky to not hit any supply issues so far but I suspect that will happen at some point as many people are experiencing this too!

They are having a lot of issues with losing packages and they have serious labor shortages. They have warned this will get worse from here to Christmas. If you ship Fed Ex this is good information to know!

I used to spend money on advertising to get more views and I found that a lot of people saw things I had for sale and they would like them or comment but it didn't always do what I meant for it to do which is make sales!
