Due to the recent challenges posed by current global events including increasing gas prices, rising inflation rates, growing interest rates and new standards being implemented from our partner carriers, we have seen the cost of shipping change dramatically in recent months. As a company, we have worked diligently to shield our clients from volatile rate increases but recent events have made it difficult to keep shipping costs low and service levels consistent.
While we always aim to give advance notice for updates that impact your business, recent events including those outlined above made for an abrupt change requiring us to make sudden adjustments to our pricing.
As a result, clients may notice an increase to a select number of our postage types of around %1.5 as of Tue, July 26. These rates have been automatically updated on our Chit Chats platform and will require no additional action, however we recommend communicating rate increases to your customers.
As the situation progresses around the globe, there may be further fluctuations in the cost of fuel making it unclear how long these rates will remain in effect. We recognize that this uncertainty can be extremely difficult for you to plan so we will continue to do our best to communicate updates as they become available.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this change poses for your business. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us for support or to answer any questions. We truly appreciate your feedback and thank you for your understanding.
