Sweet Hearts Romance Books Shipping & Postage Rates

For all buyers:  With many of the different series 2 books are thin enough to be sent together at letter rate for less money. If there is an overcharge by the system I will refund the difference, either to PayPal accounts if paid by that method ( especially for international buyers) or in cash included with parcels or to bank accounts if you wish for Australian buyers. Due to Australia Post changes as of November 2012 for international buyers there is now only one letter rate to your country. Australia Post discontinued the practice of charges in 250 gram increments in November 2012 - this changed to 500 gram increments.

Australia Post rate changes.  These happen twice a year usually, but don't always mean increases for domestic postage. When there are going to be changes there will be a post on the Latest News page in advance of the changes. Small shipping rate rises might not mean shipping costs will change for Sweet Hearts customers. As of January 1st 2016 domestic letter rates have increased due to the cost of stamps being $1 each now. Australia Post delivery times have also become slower, with normal delivery being 4 to 6 days and priority delivery being 2 to 4 days at an extra cost of 50 cents per letter rate package. At the moment Sweet Hearts will not be offering the priority rate, but probably will in the future if customers want it. Parcel rates are not increasing at the moment.
Australia Postadded an extra shipping zone for international mail which means some countries have moved to a different zone with either higher or lower shipping rates.  They also now have 2 parcel shipping rates with different price scales. Economy Air and Standard. Economy takes longer to be delivered, an average of 10 plus days, but for some parcel weights the cost has decreased. Standard is delivered quicker but can cost substantially more. For the time being Sweet Hearts will only offer Economy Air Mail.
