Unfortunately, Congress has continued to hamstring the US Postal Service, and there has therefore been another huge increase in shipping costs. I just can’t absorb that much of the shipping so I’ll be raising what I charge for shipping. This is your 1-week-ish warning: the plan is on March 15 the new rates will go into effect.
Currently, I’m charging US$8 for shipping to Canada, because the old shipping cost was a bit over US$9 (+ packing materials). The new price is almost US$15.
For most of the rest of the world, the old shipping cost was US$14.40 + packing materials, and I was charging US$12. The new price is US$22.50.
I want people to be able to get the book, which is why I’ve always undercharged a little bit for shipping, but I’m just not willing to eat US$10+ on shipping for a US$24 book. I’ve looked at some other options but everything I’ve found is 3x or more the cost of USPS, so there’s really nothing else I can do. To our international customers: I’m sorry. I’ll keep looking for better options.
