Shipping Costs Have Gone Up for 2017: Are You Prepared?

29 Dec 2016 Blog

USPS, UPS and FedEx all have raised their rates, starting with UPS on December 26, 2016, followed by FedEx on January 2, 2017, and USPS as of January 21, 2017. eBay’s shipping calculator and eBay Labels are likewise being updated with these new rates. Make sure your shipping prices on your active listings reflect them, too.

If you use calculated shipping, check that all your listings have accurate package weights and measurements. Your listings will show the new rates automatically once they take effect.

If you use flat rate shipping, review your listings to see if your flat rate covers the price increases. You may have to raise your flat rate charges to maintain the same profit level.

If you offer free shipping, review your listings to see if your prices can absorb the extra costs, or if you should make adjustments to your prices.

And remember: Using eBay labels can help you save up to 25% on USPS domestic Priority Mail and up to 37% on domestic FedEx services. Tracking is uploaded automatically, plus you get free supplies and free package pickup.
