Shipping Rates
Ordering and Shipping

Just uploaded another book…a short one…how is it possible that the shipping cost is more than the cost of the book!!! Really now. I am at a loss for words.

Increase in book costs
Ordering and Shipping

Hey Tony…. thanks for the ’I’m disappointed’…as a ‘newbie’ to Blurb I was so afraid I was really pouncing but, gee, the price increase seems rather out of hand considering the market and I have not seen any  irate comments as yet.

I don’t see anyone commenting on the recent price hike email received from the Blurb CEO? I realize that most probably nothing can be done but just wanted to mention my disappointment. Pricing was borderline good and now with the increase books costs and shipping is borderline bad.

I agree that it would be a great idea for the books to be printed in the same country where the order originates from. The shipping costs are very high (even for a Europe to Europe book as I have just found out – and I am now working on books for New Zealand!) but this coupled with the rather consistent book rate hike that has just been handed down, well, it makes the book/books almost not worth the trouble. This is sad as Blurb does a good job and I was hoping to have found the perfect answer to my publishing problems. Here’s hoping they figure something out that will work well for all concerned.
