Announcement reposted from Amazon:
This month, the United States Postal Service (USPS) launched a new domestic shipping service called USPS Ground Advantage, and we’re working to bring this service to you with Amazon Buy Shipping.
This service consolidates the current First-Class package service, Parcel Select ground, and Parcel Select Cubic shipping methods.
Once enabled, USPS Ground Advantage will offer the following shipping methods:
- USPS Ground Advantage Light: For packages that weigh less than 1 lb
- USPS Ground Advantage Heavy: For packages that weigh 1 lb to 70 lb
- USPS Ground Advantage Cubic: Cubic prices based on package size and distance rather than weight
USPS has updated its shipping service prices with the USPS Ground Advantage launch. These new prices have been replicated in Buy Shipping and will remain in place.
When the new shipping methods are launched, you can buy labels through Amazon Buy Shipping and your existing shipping methods will update automatically to the equivalent USPS Ground Advantage shipping method.
In the meantime, you can continue to use the existing USPS shipping services for your orders. We’ll share more information on the launch date and any actions to take when we enable the new shipping methods.
