Unfortunately, we have to announce that we must impose a slight increase in our postage and handling charges. This is solely due to the increases in parcel post charged by Australia Post.
Australia Post will be increasing some of their charges from the 1st September – our shipping charges are based on cost recovery (not profit) so our new postage charges will not increase until that date. The changes are postage within Australia by Registered Post will now cost $6, an increase of $1. Postage overseas by normal airmail will increase to $15 AU for a registered parcel with minimum insurance of $100. This method of postage has the advantage of requiring a signature for pickup at the Post Office so parcels will not be delivered to your unattended mailbox where they may disappear before you collect it – a little bit more secure for very little extra cost. The cost of Express Courier International delivery remains the same at $45 AU – this method is slightly faster and offers some parcel tracking but is a little more expensive.
Additional insurance is available if required – just contact us for a quote and we can organise an electronic invoice or alternative method of payment.
cheers for now from Aussie Sapphire
