This is an email Ebay sent out to sellers recently.  Note that customers must go to an alternative online label printing system to print labels for Parcel Post packages during the mail count.

Dear Ebay seller:

As someone who has used eBay Labels to purchase Parcel Post® in the past, we want to tell you about a recently-announced change that will go into effect January 27, 2013.

USPS will discontinue Parcel Post service as of January 27, 2013. Active listings with Parcel Post will automatically be updated to the new comparable replacement service—Parcel Select®—which will be available in the selling flow and shipping calculator as of January 27.

Know that the new Parcel Select service will not be available for purchase through eBay Labels until March. Sellers that wish to utilize this service before it is available via eBay Labels—and sellers who have sold items with the Parcel Select service—will need to go to the post office or an alternate online postage provider (i.e. Pitney Bowes, Endicia.com, Stamps.com, etc.) to purchase this class of service. Also, be sure to upload tracking information within your stated handling time. If you would like to continue to take advantage of the convenience of eBay Labels until Parcel Select is added to the eBay Labels system, consider temporarily offering a similar service.

As always, thank you for selling on eBay!

Sincerely,

The eBay Shipping Team

It seems as though the Postal Service would rather send business to FedEx and UPS than to pay us for the work we do. I wonder how many customers they send away that won't be coming back. What brilliant management we have.
