No more standard shipping down under!

I went to the post office to ship a pair of forks. The boxed was under 5lbs. So normally it would cost about $10-15. To my surprise, they said no more standard shipping over seas that everything will have to go first class for everything international. So it cost me $25 to send a pair of alloy forks. Don't know if anyone else has had the same experience. Just giving a heads up.

That seems like a heavy handed change. Did you get a second opinion? What about purchasing your shipping label thru Paypal? neutral

Never messed with PayPal for shipping. I always use USPS because its only about a 3 min drive and there is a packing center across the street to help out with wrapping and odd shaped boxes.
