Cheeky Wipes Reduces Delivery Charges

UK Delivery charges reduced at Cheeky Wipes
Delivery charges are a pain in the bum. Believe me, I dislike them as much as you do....
We try to be transparent with our pricing, so FREE delivery is available on orders over £40, which uses Royal Mail tracked.
However we've struggled for a while now with pricing on lower, lighter items - I completely appreciate that £3.50 is a lot to pay for sending a pack of wipes out, but that is the actual cost to us from Royal Mail. And we still have to pay VAT on that!
New Delivery Charges
With another round of prices rises imminent, we've looked AGAIN at postage and delivery charges and have gone back to using Royal Mail 1st class for lighter items. This means that we've been able to reduce postage charges:
up to 500g (bottles of oil, single pack of wipes) - £1.95
500g - 1000g (mini kits, multiple small items) - £2.95
The trade-off for lower cost, is of course that these goods are not trackable. So if you live in a block of flats etc, you might be best still to go for the tracked option, but that decision is yours.
Would be interested to hear what you think as always.
