USPS media mail rates decrease 4% today meaning that a 1 lb. package decreases from $2.72 to $2.61 yet when I go to print postage it still shows $2.72 on this site.  I have asked a question but have not received any reply yet.  Does anyone know anything about this?  I deliberately waited to print postage today because of the decrease since I have 2 boxes of books which weigh about 10 lb. each.

I'm having the same problem. I held off mailing to take advantage of the rate decrease but pbs is still charging $2.72. Hopefully it's corrected soon.

I know they use a third party shipping service.  I can't remember if it's Endicia or who.  Maybe that's the problem.  I left feedback but haven't heard back.  I doubt if I will before tomorrow.

PBS might not have downloaded the new updates (through Endicia) yet.

You could try purchasing a shipping label through the PayPal site and see if they have the new rates before buying/printing the label.

Just heard back from PBS.  They will take care of it as soon as possible.  And, yes, pappal has the new rates.
