eBay also displays a preview of how the chosen service would appear in sellers' listings - for example, for a package going from Massachusetts to Phoenix via USPS Media Mail, it will show "USPS Media Mail 2-8 business days, " while selecting FedEx Ground will display, "FedEx Ground or FedEx Home Delivery 1-5 business days; and selecting UPS Ground will display, "UPS Ground 1-5 business days."
eBay also lets sellers toggle between retail rates and the discounted rates they receive if they print and ship through eBay Labels or PayPal Labels.
