  1. Sad, the USPS just got 500+ billion forgiven by us tax paying small businesses and then slap our face with a 3rd price increase.

  2. Our store gets closed on Oct 1 til Jan 1. We will enjoy our family without the nonsense of the post office, buyers and ebay. Besides it keeps our taxes at a minimun. Enjoy the fall folks

  3. If you click through to look at the new holiday rates taking effect in October, be sure to scroll down to Commercial rates if you buy postage online. There’s a big difference (i.e., small flat-rate PM box is $10.40 retail during holidays, compared to $9 commercial).

    Retail is the rate you pay when you buy at the Post Office.

  4. Got love it, rate increase Oct 2nd, runs until January to another rate increase. 1st class is now zone rated increased .25 to .40 per package. If they raise the rate close to this one in Jan., I’ll have to increase my shipping close to $1 per package just to cover the rate and fee’s associated to the increase. Say good bye to another 10-20%. Sad there is NO ONE who will or even care about small sellers. We’re a dying breed.
