USPS has announced new rates for 2023, and we’ve provided a summary of the published changes below. Effective January 22, 2023, peak rates will end and the new rate structure will go into effect.
As always, we continue to work closely with our carrier partners to provide you with the best shipping rates on eBay Labels. While USPS has announced average increases, the actual change in the rate depends on the weight and zone.
