Yahoo Small Business Shipping Rate Change

Posted on February 12th, 2013 by Brent Carey

All Yahoo store owners need to remember that the United States Postal Service has recently updated their shipping rates. If your Yahoo store is currently offering USPS and ¬†you are using a Rate Table, chances are you’ll need to update your rates. Yahoo has provided some good links for review if you plan on updating your Shipping Manager.

If Yahoo’s current shipping module doesn’t meet your needs, you might consider an upgrade to a 3rd party shipping module. For more information please see this page:

Yahoo Advanced Shipping Manager
