Effective April 10, 2016, the US Postal Service will reverse a 4.3% surcharge applied to certain mailing rates and services, including its First-Class Mail Parcel rate at USPS retail locations, Media Mail rate, and extra services such as Domestic Insurance and Signature Confirmation.
Domestic Signature Confirmation will be reduced by $0.10, to $2.90 at USPS retail and $2.35 through eBay labels. Domestic Additional Insurance with USPS will have an average price reduction of 4.3%.
See below for a comparison of average eBay labels and USPS retail rates:

From that date you will also see lower rates for eBay labels. For First-Class packages between 1 and 3 ounces we will match USPS retail rates. For all other First-Class package weights (4-16 ounces), you will continue to enjoy discounts on USPS retail rates.
