Just for your information. Australia Post is to increase pricing by 10% next week for all Australia deliveries. Also the 250 gram package is to be removed & replaced with a minimum weight package of 500 grams, $6.60. This will greatly affect customers that just want a single small item that is over 20mm thick like connectors including packaging thickness.
In July prices are also expected to increase by the same amount due to the extra costs to freight mail due to the carbon Tax.
The ACCC has no control over package pricing only letters.
Last year Australia Post increased prices by 9%, where as Mini-Kits absorbed some of the cost & only increased by 5%. Unfortunately we can no longer absorb these cost increases, & will be reviewing our pricing next week to cover our costs.
Mini-Kits has purchased enough 500 gram express post bags at the current cost in bulk, to cover the next 12 months.
