eBay has made two announcements about shipping rates today - one about increases for UPS and the other about decreases for select services via USPS.
Effective October 2, 2022, UPS will increase some of its rates on the eBay Label platform between 1 – 3%. The adjustment will mainly impact heavier ground packages and some air packages.
We encourage you to check the eBay shipping calculator to understand how these changes may impact your shipments.
eBay Labels already provides the best possible pricing for USPS labels, and starting September 26, 2022, it gets even better. Sellers using eBay Labels will save even more on Priority Mail labels for select weights and zones, with new rates up to $1.02 lower than Commercial Pricing.
Smart Ship Tip: Quickly calculate eBay Labels shipping costs and compare eBay-negotiated rates from top carriers with our convenient Shipping Calculator.
Unfortunately, neither of those announcements gives sellers any concrete idea of exactly how much more or less they'll be paying for shipping - simply saying to check the shipping calculator to compare rates.
Once the new rates take effect, let us know in the comments whether you're seeing savings or an increase in costs!
