IMPORTANT CHANGES TO POSTAGE
On the 1st of January 2019 the German postal service greatly increased it’s postage rates for sending small packets, both within Germany and abroad. To give you some idea of the extent to which this will affect us this is what changed:
Within Germany - was €1.45 increased to €3.79.
Within the EU - was €3.70 increased to €9.00.
To the rest of the world - was €3.70 increased to €16.00.
Obviously this has had a massive effect on the way we can work with posting CDs and other items to anyone and we’re currently looking at alternatives to Deutsche Post and DHL. In the meantime the postage rates here and on our Bandcamp page are being increased and everything will look kind of super expensive.
I welcome suggestions and ideas about how we can work with this. We’re based in Germany and like to make things that people anywhere in the world can afford to buy and receive - how this will work going forward is something we need to figure out.
Thanks, as ever, for your support and enthusiasm,
