eBay considers Economy Shipping to be either USPS Parcel Post or Media Mail.

The cheapest and slowest rate for shipping. You will ether get the package eventualy or in about 2 or three years. 

(Actually it is within a month but I hate snail mail.)

Peace,

Economy shipping can be frustratingly slow. I paid $30 to have an item shipped to Virginia. It was scanned nine days ago in Kansas City, but nothing has been happened since then.

 

You would think the post office would get tired of having it sitting around and just ship it to me. Maybe they've thrown it away by now...
