Just to remind everyone that postal rates will be increasing if you are shipping from the U.S. (would be nice if ebay would send out announcements to all buyers/members about this).

More like they are robbing us. Look at the International rates. I am about to edit it out of my listings.

They have it on the site as individual pricing per each type of mailing, so you have to look each one up: https://www.usps.com/new-prices.htm
New domestic retail pricing for Priority Mail Flat Rate products include:
Small box — $5.80
Medium box — $12.35
Large box — $16.85
Large APO/FPO box — $14.85
Regular envelope — $5.60
Legal envelope — $5.75
Padded envelope — $5.95

For First class mail, it's from 5% increase for parcels to 8% international, so it's not a small increase. Add to the increase that ebay takes a % of postage costs, and it's even higher. Crazy.

You are all very welcome; I had forgotten about it, so thought others might want to know.

Thanks for the reminder...figures when I have to ship out 2 sold items tomorrow, yikes!
Hopefully they aren't far or heavy (but for me, it's always my biggest and heaviest things that end up on the other coast as far from me as possible).

I am a little confused. I print some international labels on USPS website rather than through Ebay. Because some countries/services not available through ebay shipping. Like Express to S Korea. Which I was about to print when I noticed that on USPS website it says that USPS Priority Flat rate envelope OFFERS TRACKING. Is this new? Anybody knows? Please confirm if You know. I will call 800 number at 8AM but they are pretty misinformed most of the time.
