Hi, this is Ira Grossman from eBay's Shipping team. You may recall that back in September 2006, we began a course of action towards improving shipping services and pricing for Canadian sellers, including the ability to print Canada Post Light Packet™ shipping labels on eBay.

I'm pleased to let you know you can now purchase and print Light Packet shipping labels directly from My eBay or PayPal. We, and the folks at Canada Post, are excited about this new offering, making it quicker, easier and more convenient for you to mail DVDs, CDs, and other small, lightweight items (weighing up to 500 grams) to the U.S. and international destinations. The eBay shipping tool combines pre-filled address labels with customs forms into one document, and it enables you to simply drop off your shipment at the nearest Canada Post street letterbox or Post Office.

Along with the new service offering, Canada Post is launching an eBay-exclusive, limited-time 20% discount for Light Packet U.S.A. shipments in the 100-250g weight range. The $2.99 introductory rate (regularly $3.74) will only be available until April 15, 2007 (see online Light Packet rates below).
