SHOP UPDATE: Changes to international shipping rates
As a one-person operation, a lot of my heart & soul goes into running & managing this online shop. I’m deeply grateful for people like you, who support small artist-led businesses like mine.
As I found out today, COVID & recent changes to Australia Post’s policies have changed the way I am able to run my business when it comes to sending things internationally.
For the past 6 years, I’ve been able to charge as little as $5 for international shipping by posting my pins as letters rather than parcels. However, with tighter customs restrictions and less available options, this is no longer possible. Now, international shipping fees are $20 minimum.
This really sucks for small businesses like mine and for people like me, who simply can’t afford to weather the extra cost. Although many of my orders come from overseas, I am no longer able to offer low-cost shipping for international customers with guaranteed delivery.
If you're outside of so-called Australia and are really keen on something, but can't afford the shipping - get in touch with me and we can see if there's a way to work something out.
I’ll continue to research other methods of shipping - and if anyone has any tips n tricks or workarounds for this, I'd love to know!
In the meantime, thank you so much for your continued support in whatever way you're able.
