Royal Mail Price Increases 2013
As of April 2013, Royal Mail prices will be increasing. For medium sized parcels, the price increases announced today, are particularly steep. I have always tried to keep delivery costs as low as possible and have been reluctant to charge a delivery fee for UK customers. However, as prices continue to rise, sadly I am longer able to offer free delivery.
This means that from 1st April there will unfortunately be an increase in delivery rates. Prices from this date will be as follows:
UK Delivery (1st Class Signed For) – £6 per order.
Overseas Delivery (Airsure) – £12 per order.
The above charges will be applied as a flat rate per order, no matter how many items you buy. All art dolls and paintings are sent well packaged in a cardboard box, by a priority service, to ensure that they reach you promptly, and in perfect condition. Bearing this in mind, I’m sure you will find that the new delivery rates still offer excellent value for money.
This week has seen some major changes at Strange Little Girls. The website just got bigger and better, with the addition of a brand new shop section to cope with recent increases in the volume of traffic. When I first launched Strange Little Girls, I simply needed a small shop area within the site, to list my dolls for sale, and deal with the orders that came in from time to time. I was thrilled when my dolls began to find homes with collectors around the UK. I couldn’t imagine how within a couple of years they would be winging their way to all of you lovely folks around the world. In the last couple of weeks, this growth in demand took its toll on my little web shop. As it reached its capacity, unfortunately some customers experienced problems with the checkout process.
Firstly I would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the issue. I hate seeing people disappointed. However, as a result the shop has just been upgraded with some exciting new features. As before, the new shop is accessible from the homepage, simply by clicking the shop tab. Once inside though, you will find the store has a whole new look. In response to customer feedback, you can now view all prices in a choice of currencies. Simply select your preferred currency at the top of the page. If you are buying a gift and can’t decide which item the recipient would like, you can now purchase a gift voucher, which can be sent straight to their email address. The checkout process is also now faster and more efficient, with the option of a guest checkout for those who would prefer not to register an account. Please note, as the shop is now on a new server, if you have previously registered you will need to re-register in order for your details to be stored for future purchases.
There are currently some fine art originals available to buy, as well as a couple of Gothic art dolls. Some new Bohemian dolls will be available soon. I’m also hoping to increase the range in the future to include fine art prints, so please do keep checking back to see what’s new.
