You'll automatically receive a 5-star shipping time detailed seller rating if:
* You specify 1-day handling.
* You upload US Postal Service, UPS, or FedEx supported tracking information by the end of the next business day (Pacific Time) after the buyer's payment clears. A business day is a normal weekday. Saturdays, Sundays, and major holidays aren't business days.
* Tracking data must show the package having a status of "delivered" with a delivery date within 4 days of payment clear.
Note: In some instances, there may be a delay in processing your shipping details, and buyers may be able to leave you a detailed seller rating for shipping time. If you've met the automatic 5-star shipping time requirements, your rating will be adjusted to 5 stars.

When I input the shipping information into this, it still gives me the discounted shipping price and it is what I use to ship to SF members all of the time.
This is what I do now, but I used to use the ebay shipping because as a top rated seller you get up to 30% off priority shipping (over the standard online rates).
I believe they have blocked this somewhat now, by making it nearly impossible to edit shipping labels in the ebay shipping tool.

Well, if they pay on Friday, Saturday or Sunday you have until Monday at Midnight PST to update the tracking info to meet the requirement.

See ebay requirement above...
Note: I almost never go to the post office. I schedule them to pick up the packages on my front porch.
Tip: if you use the package pickup service, remember to leave a small gift for your mail carrier from time to time. I try to get mine a gift card to the local coffee shop quarterly.
