Rising Royal Mail Costs: Optimising Your Mailing Strategy with Selectabase

Attention businesses and frequent Royal Mail users: As of 1st July 2024, significant price hikes are on the horizon for the majority of mail products and formats. These upcoming changes, particularly for 1st Class mail, pose a potential challenge to maintaining cost-effective mailing strategies.

Rising Royal Mail Costs

While the price of stamps remains unchanged for now, recent statements from potential new ownership at Royal Mail suggest future increases are possible. This uncertainty underscores the importance of being proactive and exploring alternative solutions to ensure the continued efficiency and reliability of your mailing services.

At Selectabase, we understand the critical role that cost-effective mailing plays in business success. We have been navigating the ever-evolving landscape of postal services for years, and we are here to help you mitigate the impact of these price hikes.


Understanding the Impact

The upcoming Royal Mail price changes are expected to be predominantly in the double-digit percentage range. This means businesses that rely heavily on 1st Class mail for important documents, invoices, or marketing materials could see a substantial increase in their mailing costs.

While 2nd Class mail is expected to see a smaller rise, it is still crucial to factor in these changes when evaluating your overall mailing strategy. Additionally, the potential for future stamp price increases adds another layer of uncertainty to the equation.
