This is mostly to small time eBay sellers.
I've recently noticed that eBay sales can now post a 250g satchel with Sendle for very cheap prices (compared to AP). However, the size is only A5, so it may be limiting.
"Sendle – 250g Express Satchel Rates
We have partnered with Sendle to create a tracked express service for smaller items under 250g in weight. This is a pickup service with a minimum threshold of 10 parcels/satchels per pickup day and is available via the eBay postage labels platform.
If your dispatch address is in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Adelaide metro areas and your volumes hit the minimum threshold, you will be eligible for the 250g service. There is a $0.55 per satchel fee if the pickup quantity is less than 10. See the service FAQs here ."
The FAQ link doesnt work.
$4.28 for same city
$5.28 for different city
Max weight - 250g
Max size - 245 x 165mm (they say A5)
55c extra if you dont pick up at least 10 parcels, which means costs are:
$4.83 or $5.83 for small quantity.
What do other sellers think, is it worth to change to only use this service for small items, as there will be postage savings of between $2-4 depending on what existing service you use.
