Package service still exists on Saturday

Over the past several years, the Postal Service has advocated shifting to a five-day delivery schedule for mail and packages. However, recent strong growth in package delivery (14 percent volume increase since 2010) and projections of continued strong package growth throughout the coming decade led to the revised approach to maintain package delivery six days per week.

Unless you guys receive your LPs in small envelopes that would be considered 'mail' then you will remain unaffected as far as getting orders is concerned Razz

Anyone try this yet?

It's supposed to be much cheaper than going through USPS. I guess ebay is now in the business of shipping stuff.


Prohibited items

Human body parts

I didn't quite get it. Is it free to get it overseas if you just ship your stuff to the eBay center?

EDIT: Nevermind, it says some really vague thing at the bottom. Anyone have this listed in their eBay store and can see what the charges are to Europe or Australia?

Fucking shit, it looks like this eBay thing automatically assess duties, and often higher than actual cost (due to farming it out to some third party). It sounds like it makes things easier on sellers but in the end charges buyers a fuckload more.

The articles that I read said they only wanted to, not that it's actually going to happen.

That makes a lot of sense. While the advent of the internet has no doubt severely hampered traditional mail with regards to letter writing and bills and statements that can all be done online, there most certainly is also a lot more commerce being done online, and it continues to expand every year.

Great. I'm okay with parcels not being delivered on Saturday either if saves them money as well.

Almost flipped out when I saw Parasyte Curse's new shipping rates, particularly for worldwide orders.

Yea, wow. Absolutely going to murder collecting at the current rates. How is it going to affect the future of the forum when you can only afford to take pictures of new aquisistions collected, and it is all mp3 format? Laughing

I can see the next thread of Latest Album Aquired being all these photo's of hard drives now with every song imagineable... the odd person will be like, hey I actually bought a new physical record, it cost like $5 and $80 to ship it to me. I am so happy!
