eBay has announced rate changes for USPS and UPS shipping purchased through the platform, but in typical fashion they don't give much detail - you'll simply have to check rates to see!
First, USPS rates for packages up to 6 pounds shipping to zones 1-4 will see lower rates through eBay labels, though how much lower is not specified.
Sellers using eBay Labels will save even more on Priority Mail labels for packages up to 6 pounds in zones 1-4 effective immediately.
In addition to offering great shipping discounts from all the major carriers, eBay Labels is a simple and convenient way for you to purchase, edit and print your shipping labels, either individually or in bulk. Plus, with tracking information automatically uploaded and always included, eBay Labels makes it easy to ship what you sell on eBay.
