Current Royal Mail Prices for the UK eBay Seller
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

Domestic parcel prices ( Up 5p )
