International First Class Mail:
Rates have increased by at least several dollars per parcel for one pair of specs. Retro Focus Eyewear has not raised their international shipping rates for the last 6 years. We have been charging $4 to Canada, and $6 internationally everywhere else, for First Class Mail. Here is what I paid today at the post office:
1 pr of specs (no case) to Belgium 3.3 oz $9.45
1 pr of specs (w case) to Ireland 4.4 oz $12.75
1 pr of specs (w case) to Canada 4.20 oz $8.55
1 pr of specs (w case) to Canada 4.00 oz $7.35
1 pr of specs (w case) to Canada 3.10 oz $7.35
1 pr of specs (w case) to UK 4.2 oz $12.75
2 pr of specs (no cases) to Japan 6.4 oz $12.75
In order to be fair to everyone, shipping is now calculated by the average weight of 4oz for one pair of eyeglasses. Glasses are shipped in the smallest protective crush resistant box for it's journey.
My 900+ SKU's have to be revised one by one, as the old shipping clauses with $4 and $6 international shipping prices no longer apply to orders after January 30th 2013.
