Sydney Shipping ALERT

I've got BAD news. AusPost is extremely inconsistent. I posted an order of 2 MiniZs & a keyring toy a couple of days ago for $2. Today for exactly the same package, its $8.80. Service is by exactly the same guy (jerk?) at the St Leonards PO. I'm not sure what to think. I'm still basically in shock. He coldly said that it just passed the letter standards. WTF. And he said we can't register packages to the USA. And Myer is having a "Myer heart new york" thing? Jesus Christ.

Ok, here's what we'll do for florspace orders. Desperate situations call for desperate measures.

I will not be listing new stuff until the last week of June when I can send packages from Singapore instead when I'm back. Shipping charges is pepetually regular and we'll know what we need to pay instead of $2 a day and $10 the next. Besides Auspost won't let us register packages so its hopeless if something gets lost.

So much for bringing my shop over. This place is just full of surprises.

ps: if you're within Australia and wish to see my Cube collection I'd brought with me, send me an email. :+) Postage for you guys would prolly be more decent.

To Odds'n'Blobs : Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! I thought I was the only silly one complaining about AusPost! Oh big sighs anyhoo. I'm still praying it'll get better someday. :P

I just spoke to my friend who lives in Sydney and apparently, the POs in Australia are run by independent folks. They aren't controlled by a body of sorts. So basically, everyone is trying to make a buck wherever they can and they're pretty much crap. Blech.
