No doubt you’re already aware that the price of stamps is growing dearer.
If you operate an online shop or any other sort of business which uses the post office, you’ll surely have noticed Royal Mail’s latest price hike. In order to offset its loses, Royal Mail has set the price of a stamp soaring. Businesses all over have been sent scrambling to catch up and in the rush customers have been caught out. Last year Royal Mail suffered a loss of around £41 million; this price raise should help narrow the gap between the red and the black. However, in raising their prices they’re forcing their customers to do the same.
Many feel that this is just a precursor to the whole system becoming privatised by the government and indeed competitors are coming out with large sectors of the market share. One way customers could save without worrying about the hassle that comes from switching your service is with a Frank, aka a Franking machine. It’s a digital mailing system which not only creates a brand logo but applies an automatic discount of up to 27% to your post. These are real savings you can pass on to your customers. Get yours here.
Enjoy the sun and please don’t be burned by Royal Mail’s price hikes.
