responding to the subject the base poster has on this thread... in the context of this web site, ie,. board games (vs. online retailers in general).... as far as I know no online game retailer uses usps to ship, it's either fedex or ups, unless one is buying something like MtG card singles

as for usps in general see

None except for the original poster's company.


Well the BGG Store as well uses USPS by default.
I see other retailers that offer USPS as an option to select, even if it's not default.


For the most part the 'majors' do that only for 'small games' almost local, non-continental US, APO type things.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

CSI gives the option of USPS even for huge games like War of the Ring (that's the only reason I remembered, b/c I bought that from them and had to pick a shipping method).
Now, no one would pick USPS b/c Fed Ex is cheaper and usually faster devil, but, they do offer it as an option

Re: Higher Postal Rates and on line retailers
Now you add to the mix the rising gas prices and its the perfect storm perhaps for pricing. Game prices will begin to see an increase as raw materials costs more to ship (as someone noted UPS and FEDX raise rates when gas goes up), sellers will be paying for to ship products in and out which is reflective, and the economy which looked to be improving might stall. On the flip, it could be a boon for online as people might be less prone to drive to the brick and mortar stores, and then of course, staying in rather than going out provides more time for game play.
