Shipping rates in Canada all went up last week. Perhaps the same in the US (and in turn for ebay based packages)

Rates went up a decent percent...

besides shipping going up, they have limited the amount we can insure items for to $1000. That bothers me far more than the increase in rates.

I was quoted $25 to ship one tie in an extra-small box (4"x4") from Toronto to Alabama. That was just standard shipping w/ tracking. And then they charged me $4 for the box!

With this increase, does USPS stay competative amongst FedEx and ups?

Damn how do u guys who offer free shipping handle this spike?

Regional rate box B is like 14 usd now. And flat rate medium stayed at 10.85...these sizes are somewhat comparable to each other...I just don't get it.

EDIT: I just checked prices again tonight, 24hrs from last check in, and prices decreased a tad.

Regional rate box A went for 8.65 last night down to 7.95...

And regional box B went from almost 14, down to 12.74...

So with Sunday night football messing up auction results on Sunday evenings, what days do you guys typically move to this time of year, if you do change it up? I had decent luck with Saturday evenings last year but am pondering Monday evenings this year. Sunday around noon to 1 also crossed my mind but I figured people have pre-game parties and will be preparing. Thoughts?

I think if you are selling "fashion" your cross pollenation is low. If you sell manly man stuff, should be better for you actually.

Would also like to know...I just became a powerseller and it looks like my shipping is slightly cheaper - $4.99 for a legal flat rate down from 5.15, I believe.

cheaper shipping and if you process within 1 day and offer returns, you save 20% on your final fees. kind of like paying 8% instead of 10%.

Hey now!!!!

 

I agree though. I often browse during commercial breaks. I would guess the increase in alcohol consumption would aid in impulse purchases, too.
