I'm the digital man.... do you have the digital format to buy now?
I'm the digital man.... do you have the digital format to buy now?Really. Wow! I don't know how these companies are getting such low shipping rates.
When I researched posting my graphic novel a year or two ago there was definitely savings to be made doing bulk shipping (setting up a Business Parcel Delivery Account, where you ship more than 20 items each week.). Presumably when you scale that up in factors incrementally the postage costs keep coming down and down.
Actually, I just went back online to the Royal Mail and its telling me international parcel delivery to the USA is approx. $10 (for under 1 kg - the girl at my post office weighed it at 800 grams or something around that).
So something is totally amiss here. Maybe I just need to open a Business account with the Royal Mail to get this different rate.
Looking at their official pdf. (where I assume I have to add item + weight costs - its not totally clear)
Under Non-personal Correspondence Parcels
Untracked to USA = $15
Tracked to USA = $21
Under Legacy Zonal Services International Business Tracked & Signed to the USA they are saying = $29 (and change) which seems identical to the figure I was given.
I wasn't given untracked or simply just the tracked option at the post office.
I dunno. At this point getting the Printer to fulfill the book shipping seems the best option anyway.
