postage rates states side......

Recommended Posts

Living in Europe i'd be interested to know what P+P rates are in the States internally, from state to state wise.

Is there any standard prize indication or depending on zip code?

A first class letter (up to 1oz) is 50c.  Beyond that it gets complicated.  First class mail like that is independent of the distance between sender and recipient.  I can send a letter to my next door neighbor for 50c, or I can send it to someone in Guam (anywhere with a US Zip Code) for 50c.  

 

In 1968 that same letter went for 6c.

Needless to say it also depends how much someone chooses to charge - I very recently was after a decal sheet, tracked one down to a store in the States, $20 to Europe, $10 within the states, fortunately I found one on ebay.com $6 from the States to Europe.

If it's not a regular envelope, e.g., padded envelopes & cardstock envelopes, the PO uses parcel rates rather than standard envelope rates.  I recently sold some decals and mailed them in a card stock envelope of about 7" x 4".  The total weight was probably less than 2 oz., but they charged me $3.78.  I can understand thick padded envelopes which won't go through their automated scanners, but this envelope was definitely thin enough not to cause a problem.  Stateside mailing is still not as bad as mailing to overseas destinations.  I've been selling some things on eBay, and the postage rates make overseas sales too expensive for potential buyers.
