The average USPS Priority Mail® rates increased by 9.8% on January 17 for everyone except online sellers who use Amazon Shipping Services. The recently negotiated deal between Amazon and USPS means that for now, any sellers that use Amazon’s shipping services will still pay the 2015 Priority Mail Rates and avoid any price increases. Online sellers are wondering what "for now” means but are pleased with the any news that allows them to stay ahead of the significant rate hike.
