myHermes have just announced that they are responding to Royal Mails price increases with new prices of their own. They however have made the decision to slash their prices on lighter items to make them just about the most competitive company on price in the marketplace right now.
There’s a full breakdown to come but for now you can see that the change in price structure will really please your wallet and if George Osborne’s budget announcement has you heading for the hills this will surely be good news.
Introduction of the 0-1kg parcel band
This used to be an option on the myHermes website but at the last batch of changes was swallowed up into a 0-2kg weight band. It used to cost a total of £3.90 for this service.
This is being split in two with the lighter parcels up to 1kg costing only £2.78 including VAT. Compared to what will be £3.20 at the Post Office this is a nice saving on lighter parcels.
The 1-2kg weight band will reduce from the £3.90 to £3.78 which will be a lot cheaper than Royal Mail.
The heavier package weight bands are increasing in price on a par with Royal Mails increases but myHermes will still be cheaper!
Here’s a breakdown of the new and old pricing structure and look out for a deep dive on what this means for us eBay sellers going into the Spring selling season.
