Currently First Class International scans as its leaving the country (local PO, sort facility, departure facility) but then after that it doesn't scan. Priority Mail International generally does scan once its overseas though. It would be great if the service began to extend to First Class.


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%.

Also, those Priority Mail flat rate envelopes go up from 16.95 to 23.95. That's an increase of 10.00 in just two years (went up 3.00 the year before). Medium flat rate boxes go up from 47.95 to 59.95.

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.

!!!




This is a 2LP order from US to Canada - Shipping due in February.
If this is what Priority shipping from US is going to be, I won't be buying much anymore. I really hope it won't come to this.

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

I don't have problems with UK customs and I have sent huge parcels there. Keep the value under 20 dollars.

I think the key will be.ordering more as the Priority rate is not going up as much. If you want to be The Elite, maybe you should wait to see how much it goes up first,.especial considering how strong the pound is against the dollar.

Scentofdeath, why would you select Priority shipping for that? It is obviously under 4 lbs.

It's their only option. It goes straight to $47, doesn't even say what service it is. I just assumed it's priority for that money.

Yeah that isn't right. Something fishy. I wouldn't order that from them even if it was a good band.

Found this:

http://blog.stamps.com/2012/10/29/usps-announces-new-postage-rates-for-2013/

"First Class Mail International is being renamed First Class Package Service International and is being transferred to the “competitive product list” which allows the mail class to be eligible for Commercial Base pricing (online rate discounts). 2013 rates are seeing a significant increase, with rates increasing as much as 60% for packages that weigh up to 1 lb."

Yeah it stinks but fuck them. I'm just hoping it doesn't go rotten everywhere with these increases. It's gonna fuck shit up with labels based on mailorder.
Maybe you guys should look into better distribution across the land. ...i don't know..

Not as good as Awake, but good album anyway.

I think you can get original I&W cheaper than this with the postages.

That was the point of my first post before it got hijacked by tea party members.
