All eBay sellers who use eBay Labels to pay for postage and print shipping labels automatically get USPS®
Commercial Base™ pricing along with the convenience of automated tracking and delivery notification.
USPS rates increase January 17th. However, qualified sellers—including eBay Top Rated sellers as well as sellers who have an average of 300 packages per month—receive Commercial Plus™ pricing, where available, and also access eBay negotiated rates specifically reserved for these sellers. Special pricing is automatically applied when you use eBay Labels to pay for and print your postage. For example, eTRS sellers can save up to 25% on domestic shipping and up to 29% on international shipping!
