Shipping through Etsy, no discount?

I just tried the shipping through Etsy for the first time. I thought I read that there was a discount if done this way, same as Paypal's discount. The price was the same as USPS.com, shipped from home column. Anytime I've compared the price from Paypal to USPS, there is definitely a discount off the online price (including the DC).

Thanks, just curious.

I've never used etsy's shipping labels, but I've heard people say both ways - some say you get commercial pricing, some dont.
Interesting, I wonder why. Thanks Lori!
They keep saying they have PayPal's pricing, but I think they mean the PayPal price for shipping an item not paid for on Paypal! Which is same as the Post Office.
USPS online, paypal and dc all get commercial base rates- which is cheaper than if you went to the post office and paid retail rates.
How much did you pay for what service?

USPS-com's labels are also discounted, they just don't offer First Class.

~~~When I ship an item through PP that was not paid for through PP, I get the same rates as for PP transactions.
I've been paying $1.64 for a 2oz package going first class within the US. That's the same as what I pay on Paypal.

Are you sure you selected the same rate and weight as you use on Paypal?
I paid $1.64 for 3oz which is the same rate as PayPal.
It was priority, same price to the penny as listed on USPS. I was just surprised, that's all since I was just reading about it. I just signed up for direct checkout & tried the Etsy shipping. I do love that it was easy & time saving by including email notification right away. BTW, can that be turned off or skipped occasionally?
