Hi all,

I just printed my postage via PayPal shipping, as I always do, and on each package (both less than 7 oz so I used First Class) I wasn't charged the .19 for delivery confirmation. Did this policy change?  The verbage on PayPal says Signature confirmation provides free DC, but it doesn't mention first class parcel. In the past, I've always paid .19 on DC on first class.

I'm wondering if PayPal has messed up and these packages are going to come back to me, or if it's accurate and I can breathe a sigh of relief.  Does anyone know?

Thanks

eDC is free on First Class packages. eDC is 19 cents on Media Mail packages.

Retail DC (the kind you buy at the PO counter) costs 85 cents on First Class or Media Mail packages.

Greg, I imagine that is because it actually takes clerk time/labor to do DC at the PO counter.  Online, they are not paying labor.
