Thanks for the info James! Very helpful. It's also beneficial in providing a fixed 'shipping fee'. At the flat rate of $14.50 I know what P+H costs to include in sales, provided the games fit in the bag and are within the weight.

It'd be nice if they made a larger version of it to accommodate larger games.

Cross-posted from the 2012 mid-year math trade geeklist, since James' thread is much more useful for this sort of info

Note that the flat-rate boxes are still available as well: $6.50 for Bx1 (code 00069), $10.50 for Bx2 (code 00076) and $13.25 for the Bx4 (code 00090). Unless you already have some, you have to buy the box as well; and you have to pay online via Click-and-Send, then take it to a post office for lodgement. But $13.25 for 15kg to Perth from the east coast, including tracking, is pretty good too

Link is http://auspost.ebay.com.au (the front page there now talks about smaller flat-rate satchels than James discusses above, namely $6.20 for 500g and $10.55 for 3kg, plus the satchels themselves), but once you register for Click-and-Send you can access the box info too.

Regards,

David.

Unless you have a lot more faith in the postal system than I do, you'd probably prefer to use a box with packing peanuts (and Milsims send me lots of both for free!) rather than a satchel, if you cared about the condition of the game when it arrived.

Re: Postage information for Australians. (Might be helpful).
There are also guaranteed next day satchels which are pretty cheap if you have something small. They don't guarantee next day to more remote towns & country areas. Postcodes are listed on the back.

HOWEVER, the satchels provide absolutely no protection & are therefore not much use unless you can wrap it protectively & still get it inside.

I have received games in satchels a few times now, damaged every time. The box options sound good though.
