If you’ve been through a USPS rate change before, share tips in the comments below on how your business adjusted.
Update 1/14/16: We’ve heard from sellers that you’d like to see specific rates, not averages. You can download this spreadsheet from USPS to review specific rates for different postal services. Be sure to review the tabs named below to locate a specific service and price. Please note that these rates are only available via eBay labels. Sellers who have eBay Top Rated status, or complete more than 300+ transactions per month will get additional savings on of those shown in the spreadsheet.
