Increase in USPS Rates

Ahem Ahem!

A short note: Starting on Sunday, January 21, 2018, the USPS will increase its shipping rates. As I ship with First Class mail through the post office, the shipping and handling costs for my Etsy shop are also affected.

The good news is that Etsy will automatically calculate the cheapest shipping option a seller is offering. When viewing an item, buyers can enter their country or a U.S. ZIP code on the Shipping & Policies tab to show shipping costs.

As before, I will continue to pass onto buyers the discount I get by purchasing shipping labels through Etsy, and I’m glad I can do that – as a customer, I appreciate it when sellers try to keep costs reasonable, and want to return the favor.

Happy weekend!
