Royal Mail Price Increases – 26 March 2018

Posted on

As you may be aware, Royal Mail are increasing prices on 26 March 2018 for all UK ground and Airmail services.

From Monday 26 March, the price of a first-class stamp for a standard letter will increase from 65p to 67p, and a second-class stamp will go from 56p to 58p.

In addition, the price of a first-class stamp for a large letter will rise by 3p to £1.01, and a second-class stamp for a large letter will rise by 3p to 79p.

With parcels, similar price rises are planned, with standard parcels increasing by 10p for the lowest weight items, and up to £1 for some items.

Product price changes

The majority of items which Malgra sends are in the ‘parcels’ category, and as such due to increasing costs, our postage charges will be increased slightly from 1 April 2018.

The minimum spend for free delivery will also increase from £20 to £25, which will allow Malgra to absorb the increased Royal Mail service charges.

Some products will increase by approximately 2% from 1 April 2018, due to increased costs of importing products from our supplier in Germany. Unfortunately the reduction of the value of the pound against the Euro has resulted in higher raw goods costs which until now have not been passed onto customers, but due to continued low rates, we’re having to increase our prices slightly.

Malgra aims to be competitive as possible, and try to provide low costs where possible, however external factors are resulting in these small changes to our pricing.

Any orders placed before 1 April 2018 will be subject to the current pricing and postage structure.
