hobbyDB Marketplace: Bulk Updating Your Shipping Amid USPS Holiday Rate Hike

Whether you’re playing Santa as a buyer or seller this holiday season, you might need to look for some extra coins on the bottom of your stocking.

The USPS has issued a temporary peak season rate hike, which will continue through Jan. 22 and affect Priority Mail Express, Priority Mail, First Class Package Service, Parcel Select and USPS Retail Ground.

That’s in addition to another potential rate hike on the horizon in January to help combat inflation.

Edit a Shipping Group

So what does that mean for you, the hobbyDB Marketplace seller?

With our tools, it’s easy to bulk update shipping on your sales, rather than update each sale individually.

To create or edit a Shipping Group, access the Selling menu, located in the top right on every hobbyDB page, and click “Dashboard.”

Locate the “Shipping Groups and Zone Caps” field and click “Groups.”

From here you can update prices, as well as rename groups, change, add or remove zones, and switch from flat rates to buyer requests for designated Shipping Groups.


Easily Bulk Update Shipping Prices

Once again, open the Selling menu, but this time select “Items for Sale.”

Use the search filters to choose the items that you would like to apply the updated shipping costs for. There’s also a filter option to search no shipping groups.

Once highlighted, click Batch Actions and select “Change Shipping Groups.” Choose your group and make sure to hit save.

Check out our handy guide to setting up shipping costs here where we explain further.

More information when it comes to setting up your Shipping Costs can be found in our introduction here and setting up Fixed Cost Shipping Groups here.
