Royal Mail eBay Prices to rise from 1st Jan 2021

By Chris Dawson December 10, 2020 - 12:00 pm

Royal Mail recently announced its new prices for postage effective from the 1st of January 2021. Naturally this also means that Royal Mail eBay Prices will also rise and eBay want to give you advance notice of how this will impact you.

First off, many eBay sellers keep their shops open between Christmas and New Year to cash in on bored shoppers who are done with Christmas Dinner, the Queen’s Speech and the inevitable repeats on the telly box. A double bank holiday, lockdown restrictions and the cold weather could make Christmas 2020 the biggest festive shopping day ever. If you’re staying open, save a few quid by printing your postage labels by the 31st of December rather than wait until the 2nd of January!
