Shipping inflation strikes

I’ll get straight to the point: after 2 1/2 years of absorbing increasing shipping costs, we’ve taken the difficult decision to make some minor changes to the way we charge for Cranked. Here’s what’s new:

For a single issue shipped to a UK address, the shipping cost has gone up from £2 to £2.75.

For a single issue shipped to an EU address, the shipping cost has gone up from £5.50 to £6.

That’s it. Rest-of-world shipping prices haven’t changed. Neither have subscription prices (which makes them even better value than they already were).

No-one likes increasing prices. We’ve always taken the (slightly unconventional) view that the price you see on the website is the price you pay; there are no nasty surprises lurking once you get to the checkout. The new rates reflect the cost (to us) of packing and shipping a copy of the magazine. We don’t make a profit on these charges… but previously we were making a loss. Since we intend to be around for a (long) while, that was something we had to address.

Thanks for reading…
