    1-3 oz packages went from $1.69 - $1.93

    OUCH

    Just raised all of my shipping prices on sportlots and I am debating on going away from free shipping on eBay.

    Affecting anyone else so far?

    The ever increasing prices sure put a damper on small trades/purchases! It likely won't change my purchasing/trading habits but certainly will have to look @ charging more for shipping on sales.

    I forgot the raise was today. I didn't do all of my packages yesterday including a few 8oz +. Cost myself some money on that one.

    Nearly $2 to ship something that weighs 1 F-ing ounce. That's rape. Something needs to be done about the Post Office endlessly raising their prices and screwing small businesses before it gets even more out of hand. It's completely ridiculous and only hurts the economy.

    Calm down there nancy....don't get your panties all twisted up

    The USPS does a great job considering the volume of mail they deliver a day

    Consider the increase in milk, gas, a cup of coffee soda etc. the post office is a bargain compared to UPS FED EX etc

    Is this a serious response? First of all, grow up. Secondly, to act like skyrocketing Post Office prices are no big deal means you must not do very much volume when it comes to selling, meaning you should probably keep your mouth shut about things that barely affect you. No one wants to hear opinions of people with little knowledge of what they are speaking about.

    That is what I am thinking as well. I just don't want my DSRs messed with and they seem to get dinged every time I do try charging shipping prices.

    Why? According to Mahoody, it's no big deal. Just roll with it and accept whatever happens because UPS and/or FedEx do not offer a better option for small shipments.

    Derp.

    Sorry. I'll try to dumb things down for you so you won't have such a tough time.

    You don't seem to like the price increase, neither do I. Mahoody says big deal, I responded that someone with 20 ebay listings shouldn't even be commenting against others complaining about the price increase because it barely affects him as it would someone with say, 1,000 listings or thousands of shipments a year.

    Better?

    The fee going up sucks but it is what it is. Can't really complain about people doing a service for you.

    This is coming from a guy that sends over 300 packages a month out. Adjust and move on but it still sucks. No need to make pointless arguments about it though.
