    Since the 21st has come and gone I think the correct date for the Media Mail increase is 8/31/2021. My error, sorry.

    I can confirm that the price increase begins on Monday, 8/30/21. Postage charged to me on the Pirate Ship site for a "Media Mail" package weighing between 1.1 to 2.0 pounds has now increased $0.37 (going from $3.45 previously to now $3.82.)

    Can confirm that a "Media Mail" package weighing between 3.1 to 4.0 pounds now costs $5.08 (I don't recall offhand what the previous price I was paying for that weight was... suffice to say, the price has gone "up.")

    Yup, I can also confirm the price increase are in the system.

    My standard shipping rate of $3.95 for an LP no longer even covers the postage + mailer costs (especially since you also pay eBay their share out of the shipping cost).

    Time to increase standard shipping costs in my listings.
