USPS Shipping Rates to Increase on January 17, 2016
In case you haven't heard it yet, on Sunday, January 17, 2016, the USPS is once again raising its prices. If you are an online seller, this will obviously affect your shipping. Many online shipping services will automatically adjust their pricing. This is something that I suggest double-checking with the service you use, as mistakes in this arena could get costly, and that is the last thing you want.
The New Rates
Another excellent resource for information on the shipping rate increase (and many other topics) is ecommercebytes.com. If you are an online merchant and don't subscribe to their email newsletter, I highly suggest it. They have written a blog about the looming rate hike that has a lot of very useful information, including info on webinars, etc.
Here's to a happy and prosperous 2016! Cheers!
