As of 02 April 2013, Royal Mail have increased their postage charges. The cost of postage, (packaging not included), to North America, Japan, and Australia has risen from £8.45 to £8.80, and to European destinations from £7.85 to £8.30. Although I've had to increase P+P in accordance with this price increase, I'm still not charging buyers anything for packaging/handling; which includes brand new jiffy bag, bubblewrap, etc. Please remember this when leaving response, it's my charges, (zero!), that you're rating, not the charges of Royal Mail.
