For the first time in a long time I can say I can substantially reduce shipping rates in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Postage for ordering 1x 12″ record will be the same as if you order 20x 12″ with the cost being €6.60 (usually €9.00) and Free postage on orders over €100 for Ireland and Northern Ireland* through the webstore distrotable.com
*North Ireland: Please put your country as Ireland as N.I. is not an option at check out and send a note if you put UK you will be charge UK rates.
I know it still is not cheap but €6.60 which usually €9.00 is alot better. Year on year postage rates have been going up and up, it is an awful kick in the teeth when you try to run a distro on a shoestring in the West of Ireland which means I rely heavily on post and most customers have to pay postage to get items. But due to the pandemic and more businesses offering online shopping An Post has a special offer to allow buying shipping labels at a reduced rate till September.
I have always tried to keep postage rates as low as possible despite rising shipping costs and have for the last couple of years tried to not implement postal rises having not raise the postage rate above 500g(1×12″ and something else) since 2017.
So going to try and buy as many postal labels as possible before the offer ends to keep the postage rate as low as possible after this offer ends. After which I will try and review postage costs and see if I can still make a similar offer on postage.
I am really happy about this and wish I could extend this to outside of Ireland but UK people I do offer free shipping over €100
The distro is expanding with a lot of new arrivals and I will be taking on a broader range of releases over the next while and more coming in the next few weeks. Thanks for your continued support and I am surprised you kept reading my rambling this far.
I have also set up a group on Facebook where I post what is arriving and give early access to distro arrivals before they are made widely available across the webstore Facebook Group
