USPS Priority Mail Shipping Increase - How is Fastpack dealing with this increase?

As many of you already know, the United States Postal Service is not only increasing rates on Priority Mail, and their other services, but also going to a Dimensional Weight system also (to zones 5-8). Any package over 1 cubic foot, (a 12"x12"x12" box is 1 cubic foot), would be measured to determine it's Dimensional weight, and the higher of the two would be charged, either dimensional or actual weight.

We have had many customers contact us, concerned about how this increase would affect their shipping costs on the shipping supplies purchased from us. How are we handling the increase? Will there be any increases?; Yes, and NO.

Lets start with good news, NO shipping increases are expected on ANY of our products.(Except to our customers in AK & HI & PR, sorry, see below for more information.)

We have negotiated lower shipping rates with a couple of Ground delivery companies and will be shipping items that previously shipped via Priority mail, via these ground services. This includes our Bubble Wrap rolls, and Peanuts, along with any other products that have in the past shipped via Priority mail. A few items will still ship Priority Mail, but only these items not effected by the increase. You will start to see changes to each page on our website showing which method of delivery each product or product line will ship. All items that have shipped via Ground Delivery in the past, will still ship via Ground, with no increase. Reminder, customers on the west coast that in the past have received their Priority mail packages in 3 days, may take approximately 5 business days via Ground delivery. The remainder of the our customers should receive items in 1-4 days.

To our customers in AK, HI & PR, there have been some slight increases to some items, we are still working on possible solutions to lower shipping rates to your states.

If you have any questions regarding our new shipping policy or methods, please send us an email, and we will respond asap. Send emails to support@fast-pack.com .
