Some Shipping Changes





It seems that the International First Class
Shipping problems I encountered over the Holidays,
just won't go away.
Even my Post Office can't give me an explanation
as to why the packages seemed to have just disappeared.

Most of them get to Jericho NY and then all tracking information stops.
A couple packages took more than 2 weeks JUST to get to NY.

So....I've done away with all International First Class Shipping.

I only encountered one or two problems with the
International Priority Flat Rate packages...
and those were all very trackable.

From this point on...
I don't offer International shipping on
 Scrabble Tile pendants,
bookmarks
and mini prints.

International shipping has been upgraded to
Priority or Flat Rate Priority on everything else.

It's just costing me too much money to redo and reship all
the packages that have already been shipped once.
The post office have offered no help...
and I have to run all First Class packages to the Post Office in person.

So...it just makes sense to me
to be able to ship the International packages at the same time
I ship everything else..
and the only way I can do that
is through Priority Shipping.

I'm sorry it's been so rough for you. Hopefully, your new solution will make things go more smoothly.

I hope your shipping doesn't become a problem - It sounds like a tough job to do.

Sorry to hear of your shipping hassle! I hope your new solution does the trick. I don't know what goes on at the usps. They shipped one of my parcels to IN! How do you confuse a NY address with IN??

I feel for you . . . it has to be so frustrating not to mention expensive. Hopefully you'll have a lot less problems now that you've switched to priority. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

I don't ship internationally because of this. I have made exceptions, but only rarely. Hang in there!!!
