Royal Mail postage increase

It's that time of year again - our beloved postage service has increased their prices again :(

And not by a little bit, by quite a lot! Not content with raising the postage prices 30% last year, they've hit us with a massive 18% increase again already.  So now the minimum price Royal Mail charge for second class shipments is £2.60.

But there is good news! While we have increased our postage charges in line with this change, we will continue to aggressively subsidise these costs so that you don't have to bear the brunt of these price rises. Even ignoring the money we have to spend on packaging materials, we are charging less for postage than Royal Mail charge us. We promise you that our postage charges are more than fair and we'll never make money on postage and packaging.

And that's not all. We have set our prices at a flat rate of £2.59 no matter how big your order is. So it doesn't matter if you order 3 jars or 13 jars - you'll still never pay more than £2.59 in postage fees even if it costs us much much more. Because of this it's now better value than ever to take advantage of our massive savings on Multipacks and Samplepacks.

We pride ourselves on keeping our prices as low as possible. Make sure you check the total cost of your order as many other Bacon Salt vendors charge up to £5 for postage. We're committed to being great value for money.  It's because of this that you can be confident that we are the cheapest Bacon Salt seller in Europe :)
