I hope it's just the label being assholes on this one. $47 shipping for a 2LP? They can keep it.


Did you e-mail them? Could easily be an error.

No, too much headache for an order, besides, that thing is going into independent stores when it's out so lots of other chances to get it.

One time I listed a tape for $14 and a quantity of 7 when it was the other way around. I would have appreciated if someone pointed out how ridiculous it was right away

Anyway, here we have some answers:



So now it looks like sending 1 tape from USA to EU will be $9.15, and 1 EP will be $12.15, and one LP will be $18.20. There will be a slight price discount for online postage purchases, it seems. This effects light packages of EP and CS the hardest.

Sounds like USA is catching up to the rest of the world...

that chart doesn't mean much to me though since I don't speak ounce.

I certainly won't be buying anything from US distros in future. With this postal increase plus the fact that UK customs seem to be charging for everything coming in means it's far cheaper to get stuff from Europe.

I will definitely have to limit / rethink my us purchases in the future. Looking at that chart further above the pain limit has been reached (if this is the correct expression). Sad really.

Price groups? What do they mean by 1, 2, 3-5, 6-9?

I'm pretty sure 1 = Canada, 2 = Mexico, 3 - 5 = Most EU and 6 - 9 = Australia, etc

Really sucks, price to ship small stuff to Canada just doubled.

$18.20 for one LP is still less than I pay if I order one LP from Europe once the exchange rate is factored in (most of the time)

Great article explaining about the postal service being forced to fund pensions for workers 75 years into the future (workers not even born yet), while no other institution is forced to do this. Which, as stated earlier is an effort to force it into privatization. It blew my mind when I first read this, after hearing lies for so many years...

Dude you read the nation? Ugh....

16 oz to Europe right now is $13.17, so I'm guessing it will go up a couple bucks. Obviously, the lower the weight, the higher the percentage increase.

As of when I signed it, there are only 776 out of 25000.

Not looking good...

Actually, I have read that there will be tracking through First Class International with the rate increase. It needs to since I also read that First Class Intl postage will increase 59%.

If this is true I'll be pretty happy to be honest! Having tracking on all international packages would reduce so much of the risk associated with overseas orders that are paid via Paypal.

If it's just the tracking number they put on the package you can't use it, or it will stop functioning at the US border like Insurance does.
