When did the shipping charges for flat rate boxes increase? They are now a ZERO savings from USPS. Why didn't they tell merchants this? Are they trying to sneak it in under the radar? When I go to purchase a label this is what I am being charged now.

 

I was being charged (after the USPS Jan 2021 rate hike):

Lg FRB $19.30

Med FRB $13.75

Padded Flat rate envelope $8.00

Flat Rate Envelope $7.40

 

Now I see (Oct 2021)

Lg FRB $20.05 = +$0.75

Med FRB $14.50 = +$0.75

Padded Flat rate envelope $8.75 = +$0.75

Flat Rate Envelope $ 8.15 = +$0.75

 

Notice a pattern here? Where did they tell merchants that was going to happen? I can't find it anywhere.

The USPS announced holiday rates in late summer to be in effect in October.

Don’t believe PayPal themselves gave the heads up. Found out in the eBay forums myself from sellers who are on the look out.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
