Also worth noting:
Prices for some heavier items will fall, which will be good news for some eBay buyers and sellers.
For the first time, medium-sized businesses will get discounts on volume – the more they post, the lower the postage bill.
Please see the Royal Mail website for more details on discounts and new prices.
