eBay Canada announced Wednesday it would retire Canada Post Expedited Flat Rate Box and Canada Post Expedited Flat Rate Box U.S. for listings on eBay.ca later this week. Once the services are retired, they will no longer be available to use in new listings or relists, and eBay will remove the shipping services on Good 'Til Cancelled listings when they reach their next 30-day renewal date.

Good 'Til Cancelled listings that offer the Canada Post Expedited Flat Rate Box service as the only domestic option will be ended so that sellers can select a new shipping service for Canadian buyers.

Good 'Til Cancelled listings that offer the Canada Post Expedited Flat Rate Box USA product will renew with the Flat Rate Box shipping service removed. If that leaves no remaining shipping services for U.S. buyers, eBay will no longer display the listings in the main search results on eBay.com. Sellers will have to add another U.S. shipping service in order to restore their eBay.com search visibility.

eBay said PayPal Label Printing for both Canada Post Expedited Flat Rate Box and Canada Post Expedited Flat Rate Box USA would continue to be available.
