Re-classification of USPS First Class Mail on eBay

We have updated our default ebay shipping method to map USPS First Class Package to "Standard". This follows eBay changes last week announced below:

USPS First-Class Service No Longer an Expedited Shipping Service

Starting the first week of May, USPS First-Class will be reclassified on eBay from an Expedited to a Standard shipping service. Expedited shipping services have an estimated delivery time of 2-3 business days and Standard shipping services have an estimated delivery time of 2-5 business days, and since USPS First-Class did not always meet the Expedited delivery time requirement, it is being reclassified. The shipping service name changes from First-Class Mail to First-Class Package.

Note that Teapplix provides a tool to override the default eBay shipping methods classification.
