Phillip, Interesting, I have an account on USPS but though I receive shipping notifications from UPS, I’ve never received one from USPS. I’ll have to check my spam filter.
Also, I had to send them package rates and that includes tracking information which I didn’t know, vs First Class postage which is about half but doesn’t have tracking and must be flexible like a paper letter. I’ve shipped flat rate boxes loaded with steel, must have weighed 17lbs for $5.15 across country in 2 days. Now they upped the small flat rate box to $7.15 and I think they have a weight limit.
One other point as people have asked: I haven’t sent shipping emails to everyone yet, so far just the smaller orders. The rest will come out in the next 24 hours.

Those that elected the lower cost alternative should arrive no later than the end of next week, possibly a lot sooner. I have tracking numbers for each parcel but don’t have the energy to type them into separate emails. if on the outside chance your package doesn’t arrive by next Friday, please shoot me an email and I will track your package.
