Royal Mail increased prices take effect today

No primary category set

It’s the beginning of April and to ensure you start the month off right and you’re not caught off guard, we wanted to remind you that the Royal Mail increased prices take effect today. These changes include increases to many domestic products and despite it being April fools day, this is no joke.

“We are continuing to keep our prices as competitive as possible, while responding to the significant cost pressures this unique period that we are all working through has created. In particular, this is in response to the changes in international costs for conveyance, delivery, customs clearance and new data requirements.

We know how challenging this year has been for many companies and we have worked hard to keep these increases as small as possible.”
– Royal Mail
