Default 1st Class Mail rate change?

I just used eBay shipping for a 3oz. First Class Mail package, and it only cost $1.64 with DC#. This has cost $1.75 for the last couple of years, as far as I can remember.

Something changed in the rates? Is this happening to anyone else? I also notice when I print out the label it has a big "F" in the upper left whereas it used to have a big "1". It also says "USPS First-Class PKG", whereas it used to say "USPS First Class Mail".

This change just happened as of this morning, some labels I printer yesterday still had the old price/printout.

Well, this is a price decrease. Was $1.75. Now it's $1.64. At least that's what I'm seeing on things I'm shipping this morning. I hope it's not a mistake by eBay. A $0.11 decrease for First Class Mail Pkg would be a very welcome change.

I believe using DC is free now online, so even though rates went higher shipping online looks like it is going to be cheaper

Correct. It was in the most recent seller newsletter. DC is now free when you print your labels on Paypal.

The great USPS continues to drive customers online while putting their employees out of jobs. A win for computers over man

As far as I can tell, it's all legit with the new rate change on Monday. Any labels you printed Saturday after the post office closed should automatically be dated Monday and reflect the new price.

9 ounces is now $2.65 instead of $2.77. Everything else I've packaged up has been 3 ounces or less so far, and been the same $1.64 instead of $1.75.

Priority rates went up (again) though. It's all in the email from Ebay.
