On Jan 17 2016, USPS hiked the hell out of their rates. The average rate on First Class international packages went up more than 20%. Some routes almost doubled in price. With record low oil prices...go figure. Anyway, since USPS First Class is still the cheapest / most reasonable way to ship under 4 lbs globally...those new rates will be reflected in my international shipping fees. I wish there was a better way!
