USPS Rate Changes

USPS has changed rates effective 1/27. Some went up minimally while others went up quite a bit. Was able to keep some rates the same but others had to go up. As the increase was too much to absorb. 

USA - As of now no shipping increases. 

Orders over $50 still get free shipping. It will show automatically and is based on subtotal before shipping costs.

International - Some stayed same others increased.

Packages under 1 lb will no longer have cardboard in them. In order to qualify for the class needed to keep the costs the same they have to remain flexible. Otherwise the costs would have increased greatly. Mexico is no longer priced same as Canada. They moved to same pricing as all other countries.
