Australia Post has increased their prices this month to include a fuel surcharge now so you will need to make sure that any of your shipping methods with Australia Post may have gone up.

Here are a few changes to the pre paid bags that most eBay sellers would be using to send smaller items:

Up to 250gr $5 plus bag

500gr Regular Pre Paid Satchel $6.60 –  500gr Express $9.20

3kg Regular Pre Paid Satchel $11.20 –  3kg Express $12.55

Also eBay and Australia Post have teamed up to bring you the flat-rate box – a postage and packaging solution that gives you a flat postage rate to anywhere in Australia.

The new flat-rate boxes are available for items weighing up to 15kgs and come in three sizes:

  • Small (Bx1) – 220mm x 160mm x 77mm (suits A5)
