For some reason I did not realize that shipping rates increased Jan 21st. Wondering why my shipping bill is so high I checked and the rates increased quite a bit. I do not profit on shipping, I charge exactly what they charge me. Priority mail (with my commercial discount) is now $6.90 up from $6.50 prior to Jan 21st. I thought I would make a statement about this here since paying high shipping charges always bothered me. Just two years ago it was $5.25 so we are getting very poor service and paying more for it.
