This really affects businesses that sell light items but that are too large to fit in "large letter" post. To international people that is anything over about one inch tall, including packaging.
It seems shocking that if a business sells items that weight 150 grams and send 20 a day that the cost of postage has gone up from about £2,000 per year to almost £10,000. Now it looks like they want another 53% (estimated) which takes the cost to over £15,000 a year.
That is an increase of 750% in about 6 or 7 years. Still, they manage to make a loss. So where is the money going?
