Default USPS Crazy price jump on Amazon? Glitch?

So I was doing my usual shipping today. I paid the usual current price for 4oz on first class, $2.61 on eBay for a decent amount of shipments. I then log into the only Amazon account that sells FBM and 4oz first class is $5.06! USPS Small flat rate box was like $8. What the hell!

I had to go ahead and purchase the almost double priced usps labels on a few shipments because I'd rather try to deal with getting refunds then getting rid of late shipment dings.

why not buy the shipping labels from ebay and then just upload the tracking number to Amazon.

Update: It no longer has the outrageous prices and have no idea what caused that. It clearly shows in my history that I paid the amount I did for those labels. Weird

Glad I wasn't the only one

It's been happening the past few days too like the article says. Had probably 30 orders have to wait until the next day to ship. Contacted amazon and told me they wouldn't count these as late shipment marks and to continue business as usual.
