Online entrepreneurs can attend a business workshop in Issaquah to learn how to ship eBay items through the United States Postal Service.

The postal service is hosting a “Grow Your Business Day” workshop Friday to educate online sellers about how to ship quickly, easily and affordably. The workshop is at 1 p.m. in the community room at Issaquah City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way. Seating is limited, so people interested in attending should register in advance.

In the hourlong presentation, postal experts plan to update eBay shippers on the postal service’s shipping products, such as Priority Mail flat-rate boxes and envelopes.

The auction website ranks among the largest online marketplaces on the planet. More than 94 million active users globally use eBay.

    This is interesting since the Post Office has taken the Riverton Heights Post Office from being open after midnight to regular hours. When I first started doing Ebay I used the Airport Post Office. After 9/11 they closed that office and kept the Riverton Post Office open very late. It was always full of Ebay Sellers mailing their packages.

    Now with that closing there are NO Post Offices open past regular closing hours. Very inconvenient.

    I now use UPS for everything and am very happy.
    I am so surprised our Senators and Congress haven’t done anything to help manage the Postal Service.

    The Post Office is now over $3 Billion with a Big B in Debt. It doesn’t get much more incompetent than that.
