Cheaper eBay Shipping is Almost Here

This just in from eCommerceGuide.com:

eBay North America President bill Cobb announced today that beginning Friday, June 17, the 20 cent fee previously applied to all USPS First Class, Media Mail, and Parcel Post labels will be gone. This is good news for sellers, claims Cobb.

"One of my priorities for eBay.com is to make shipping less of a hassle for you. Put simply, we want to do for shipping what we did for online payments when we acquired PayPal and integrated it into the transaction flow on eBay," he said in an announcement posted on the site this morning.

"Last year, we introduced the ability to save time by printing shipping labels with pre-filled address information, billed directly to your PayPal account. You've told us you love this - in fact, you've printed millions of labels so far," added Cobb.

This announcement was originally slated for the upcoming eBay Live! Conference beginning June 22 (which we will be covering from San Jose), but Cobb couldn't' contain his excitement any longer.

Thanks for that info Phil. I don't use their internal shipping as I have my own UPS and USPS accounts, but I'll check into that. Also, as long as they are lowering fees, it would be really nice if eBay lowered their auction fees. That would make many sellers (including me) VERY happy.
