Postal Rates

This is the time of year when Royal Mail increase their postage rates. The new rates apply from 23 March 2020 and the shopping site has been updated to reflect the increases.

My apologies, SOTA has no control over these rates.

From the beginning of April I will reintroduce pdf versions of certificates. There will be a charge for these certificates but you can save the postage charges by accepting electronic transfer rather than requesting a printed and mailed version

Format and max measurements Max weight Price for Europe Price for World Zone 1 Price for World Zone 2
Letter 24cm long 16.5cm wide 0.5cm thick 10g £1.42 £1.42 £1.42
20g £1.42 £1.63 £1.63
100g £1.68 £2.42 £2.42

Certificates fall into the 100g category and USA is World Zone 1 (see MM0FMF post)

But isn’t a certificate too big to be a standard letter (unless folded)?

Which would make it £3.66 for World Zone 1


My fault, should have read Andy’s post more accurately :frowning:
Certificates are Large Letter and attract the higher postage cost
