Default USPS First Class International Shipping Changes...

Has anyone else noticed how shipping prices for USPS First Class International has gone up significantly? Did they put out an explanation of why this happened? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Probably because they are losing money on incoming international shipments.

I read somewhere that a shipment to an international country is delivered for no compensation to the incoming country. So, the US will deliver mail incoming from Japan, ans long as Japan delivers mail coming from the US.

Not sure if that is true or not, but it could certainly explain the jump in cost.

Just last week, I was able to ship internationally with this service for $3.00 if < 1 oz. Now it seems that same 1 oz package costs $6.55... it's kind of ridiculous.

Delivery confirmation should not jack up the price by more than 100%...
