LotFP's lifeblood is customers ordering directly from us. And I say
"us," because while officially LotFP is just me, the fact is that every
author and artist and graphic designer I work with is paid out of the
money you spend on LotFP books and PDFs.
But postage rates rise every year (sometimes twice a year!) and that
makes mail-order more and more difficult to afford for our customers,
especially as LotFP's catalog grows and we add more hardcovers to the
production schedule. I say enough is enough.
As of right now LotFP is capping shipping rates.
Nobody will pay more than 10€ for Economy/second class shipping. I'll
eat any remaining cost in the hopes that customers will add more books
to an order knowing that doing so won't cost them a penny more in
shipping. We can both win that way. (There is a maximum weight of 1900g
worth of stuff that can be put into this class of shipping, over that
and it becomes a parcel.)
Priority/First class shipping will be capped at 20€ for EU customers
and 25€ for non-EU customers. Non-EU customers' rates for tracked
shipping and large parcels will be capped at 25€.
Shipping to Finnish addresses remains free.
If you see something in the store that's not consistent with the new
policy, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get it fixed.
And please spread the word if you're so inclined.
