Changes to Shipping Label Prices Through Discogs Shipping Platform in July 2020
The United States Postal Service (USPS) announced in June that the First Class International (FCI) prices would increase for U.S. sellers as of Wednesday. July 1, 2020. This has impacted the discount we’re able to offer our sellers through Discogs Shipping; as a result, our rates for FCI shipping will also go up.
Starting July 15*, Discogs’ shipping label rates will give an average discount of 8% against commercial rates to our sellers; this is the maximum discount USPS permits us to offer. As far as we’re aware, this rate will still be more competitive than many other platforms providing shipping through USPS.
You can find more details on the new rate information in our help documentation. Due to the flux with shipping rates, going forward, we’ll keep you up to date with any changes that affect our label prices in the Discogs Forum. Head to Forums > Marketplace > Shipping.
We understand the impact these changes may have and want to help as best we can. Please contact our Community Support team if you have any questions or need assistance adjusting your Shipping Policies.
