The United States Postal Service (USPS) continues to be the most popular shipping choice for Domestic and also International customers. However more than likely because it is the only mail service currently available to us.

First of all, we are not trying to make a profit on shipping.  The current pricing below includes packaging supplies, envelopes, boxes, tape, labels and also someone’s labor to produce the package for pickup.

In addition, you may go to USPS and easily check the current postal rates for packages.

The USPS usually has a review for cost price increases every year in January.  The USPS  rates currently in effect are expensive for us and our customers, however, we have no choice but to use them. They are the only mail service available in the United States.

Everything we ship is a package.  The USPS also defines any container or envelope over 5 mm thick and or weighing 56 grams or more is a package, therefore package shipping rates apply.

Lastly, we are a commercial shipper.  The USPS picks up from us every day.  If we under weigh packages by error or otherwise, the USPS can cancel the postage. Then return the package(s) to us for accurate weight on a new shipping label. So we avoid all that and follow their guidelines.
