Current Royal Mail Prices for the UK eBay Seller

Updated on April 4, 2016

The New Post Office Prices ( 2016 )

If you are a British eBay seller, you need to know exactly what it will cost you to mail your items, before you list them and without having to take them to the Post Office. You need your own postal scales and postage chart.

A tape measure would be useful also, thanks to the new measurement rules.

Royal Mail's own website is ( I find ) less than helpful if all you want is a nice clear chart of airmail costs. They do provide such things, but they do an excellence job of hiding them amongst waffle.

So for anyone reading this, who needs it, here are the new postal prices ( Starting 29 March 2016 ) taken from their own pricing guides and edited for greater clarity.

Latest Post Prices

( 29 March 2016 )

Domestic parcel prices ( Up 5p )

Airmail under kilogram price ( Up 10p )

Airmail over kilogram prices ( Down 1p )

Petition the Government about Royal Mail

If you feel like complaining about the prices being charged by Royal Mail, you are not alone.

If you click on the link under the picture on the right ---->

...then you will be taken to a page on the governments e-petition site with various Royal Mail complaint petitions that people have started. I can't promise you that the government will listen, but it's worth a try if you feel motived enough to complain.

      Sending a single CD AIRMAL now costs £3.30, even though it is under 40gm.
