Not sure if use to many but definitely for me as a eBay seller as it saves money on the smaller parcel but saving money if it weighs more :)
At myHermes, we’re always striving to improve the value of our service. Having reviewed our offer, we’ve decided to change our weights and dimensions to compete with all of our competitors, including Royal Mail and we are introducing a new range of weight bands for smaller and medium sized parcels.
This is great news, as revising our parcel weight bands now makes it easier for you to compare prices, with the introduction of two new weight bands: “0-2kg Small” and “0-2kg Medium”.
This means that if you are sending a parcel that weighs 2kg or under:
If the size does not exceed 45cm (L) x 35cm (H)x 16cm (W) you will be able to take advantage of our small parcel category.
If the size exceeds the small parcel, you can opt for the medium parcel category, with maximum dimensions of 61cm (L) x 46cm (H) x 46cm (H).
Our upper weight and dimension limits will not change allowing you to send parcels weighing over 2kg up to 15kg and a maximum length of 120cm, with combined dimensions of 245cm. See our parcel size page here.
The myHermes prices have been updated and will show the cost of a small or medium parcel from 00:00 on Wednesday 17th August. The prices of a “0-2kg Small” parcel will cost from £2.75 (inc VAT) and the price of a “0-2kg Medium” parcel will cost from £3.95 (inc VAT).
