Also, are flat rate boxes free to take?

How long does it take to get flat rate shipping?
Priority delivery. The USPS flat rate boxes are Priority Mail, meaning that a package will normally be delivered in two or three days. Priority Mail packages also get special handling in the USPS system.
While the boxes are really 100% free, you can only use the free Priority Mail boxes for… Priority Mail. USPS is very strict on this rule. You won't be able to use the boxes to ship Media Mail, First-Class, or Parcel Post.
The USPS flat rate boxes are available for free from your local post office, or you can order them in bulk online from their main site. The cost per box is included in the standard flat shipping rate, so you don't have to pay twice.
If You Are Shipping Items Under 2 Pounds… USPS will always be cheaper than FedEx or UPS hands down. However as the weight creeps closer to 2 pounds, USPS pretty much reaches pricing parity with UPS and FedEx Ground. USPS really shines when your package weighs less than 13 oz and can be mailed via First Class mail.

Parcel Select Ground is a USPS mail class that offers ground delivery service at very low rates for large or heavy packages. When using this mail class, shipments can weigh up to 70lbs. and delivery ranges from 2–8 days. Rates are based on distance, weight and mailpiece dimensions.
While the USPS website states delivery times of 2-8 business days, in our experience it can take noticeably longer. In my opinion, you should avoid Standard Post altogether. I'd much rather use UPS or FedEx Ground delivery which guarantees delivery within 5 days.

Originally Answered: Do you have to sign to receive priority mail? For domestic Priority mails, only if the sender has paid for a signature required services, such as signature tracking or certified or registered mails. No. You only sign if the sender paid to include "USPS Signature Confirmation".

eBay has no official or default shipping method or carrier; there's no "standard" service or carrier, in that sense of the word. eBay does use the term 'Standard shipping" to refer to shipping services that deliver in 3-7 days such as USPS First Class packages and UPS Ground.
