not selling anything, but relevant

Don't know if you guys have noticed, but USPS has raised rates on us again. I got a shipping estimate before the beginning of the year for a small shipment, under 2lbs, and it was around $5.50. Now I look and it is up over $6.70. Just letting you guys know, especially those of us that sell plants for the price of shipping, things are going up.

Doubtful that the rates are going up, especially since the bottom fell out of the price of oil. Most likely you got an estimate for one zone at $5.50 and then used the same weight in a different zone and that's why it's $6.70.

no, it was the same person for each estimate. I got the estimate before the new year, and I printed the label today. In the intermittent time, the price went up more than $1

well I don't know what's going on then. I checked several times to make sure I didn't type something in wrong.
