As of January 22, new USPS® rates will be in effect. The Shipping Calculator, eBay Labels and PayPal Labels will be updated to reflect these changes. Visit USPS for details. If you ship with USPS, be sure to review the changes and adjust you listings as necessary.
FREE Delivery Confirmation for First-Class Mail with eBay Label Printing
As a part of the January 22 rate update, USPS will begin extending FREE Delivery ConfirmationTM to First-Class
Mail® service for parcels, when postage is purchased online. So if the cost of Delivery Confirmation was holding you back from using eBay Labels, now’s the time to get started. With eBay Labels you can purchase discounted postage, prepare multiple shipments, and print up to 50 USPS shipping labels at one time—all automatically prefilled with your buyer’s name and address. Most important, your USPS shipment tracking information is automatically uploaded to My eBay and emailed to your buyer. Uploading tracking is required to qualify for automatic 5-star ratings for fast shipping.
Note: This announcement was updated on 1/27/12 to correct an error — we would like to clarify (Free Delivery Confirmation on First-Class Mail is specifically for parcels only, being renamed First-Class Package Service parcels). We apologize for any confusion.
