First of all, i know that the topic is not about HOT WHEELS but it does related to all the net sellers in MALAYSIA who do business in HOT WHEELS or toy related business online or online worldwide business including me. This morning when i want to sent out parcels to overseas and one of the sender from our local post office mentioned that the oversea postage price has been insanely increased to double the normal price. I was totally shocked when i was told that one of my parcel that send to U.S. address is RM64.60 for 0.21kg!! Can you imagine that?? What makes me even more unhappy when the person in charge at the counter ask me do you still want to send or not?? Last time, when i posted out to U.S. address is only RM23.40 for 0.21kg. *RM stands for Ringgit Malaysia. Luckily i did photographed the postage rate before it increased.
THIS CHART HAS BEEN USE FOR A LONG TIME NOW & BEFORE MAY 2013
THIS NEW BOOKLET OF NEW PRICE LIST IS EFFECTIVE IN MAY 2013
If you take a look at the zoning section for Air Parcel, U.S.,U.K., Canada & Mexico is not in any zone list. Don't you think it is weird? And if these countries were to be categorized in Other Countries, that means that the postage cost is about RM120 and above (for 1kg)?
I have called the head of our local poslaju here and ask about whether the POSLAJU shipping rate will be increased or not and mentioned that will not be increase at the moment. They have discuss this matter since the POS MALAYSIA have increased the price and they received ALOT of complaints and there's no reason given for why the overseas postage fee has been increased at the moment.
Well, i just want to share these information for all MALAYSIAN out there who is doing posting to overseas, please be aware of this matter and share with all your friends or colleagues, ok. Ever since the end of the Election, some of the things in our country has been changes alot. I felt that this matter is only the beginning of something even worst which is about to pour on all of us. Some of my friends here has already stop the business for shipping out because of the increased postage fee. Be aware of all the things that ship into our country from overseas and check all things are correct and in order before you take your things from the post office. We are being forced to use other courier services but i can tell you now that all the other courier services are more expensive even if you have registered account on them. I have called some of the other courier services and they mentioned the postage rates will be increased sometimes soon.
Again, please share this information to avoid any inconvenience costs to your customers at the end of the transaction. Thank you.
Thank you for visiting my blog & i hope that this matter will be solved if all act in one voice and with one power! Take care!
