Australia Post Price Increase

Australia Post increased its postal charges, effective April 8, 2013.

This was the 3rd price increase in 18 months and will affect many mail services. (You can log onto the Australia Post website ( to view the new increases.)

It’s important to note that normal mail customers cannot get the lower postal rates published by Australia Post without using a provider like Direct Mail Corporation.

Low end postal rates require a mail house that has high end, flexible line-hauling and mail consolidation software and multiple wrapping and inserting machines (4 or more), otherwise the higher end of the spectrum postage rates will apply.

DMC has the latest software update for our data tools postage pricing software so if we haven’t already provided you with your new rates, Please call your DMC representative asap to discuss.
