Re: Postal hike from the US

If a package is less then 13 oz, it can be shipped via First Class. This is a lot less. There is also Parcel Post. It's slower, but it gets the job done. It's a lot less then Priority Mail. If all else fails, there are flat rate mailers. Anyways, there are some ideas. I know the feeling on postage though. I don't know how business offer free shipping...

It's not THAT discounted though. As far as I understand it, if you ship through Paypal or Etsy or Endicia, you receive the business discount. It is not a huge discount by any stretch.

You can actually send a package up to 64 oz via First Class to Canada. The 13 oz limit is only within the US I believe.

UNBELIEVABLE.
I hear you, this is so frustrating! The prices to mail me one or two diapers have actually doubled. I'm afraid I may not be able to buy many dipes from the US through diaperswappers anymore. I looked it up and it was 8.55 just to send me one med FB
