Shipping profiles not updating correctly?

I have recently changed the price of shipping (thanks, USPS) for some of my items using a specific shipping profile, and then clicked the button that said “apply changes to all items using this shipping profile,” but nothing has changed on any of my listings. Attempting to change from one shipping profile to another on any item in the Batch Editor doesn’t work either. Anybody else having the same problem?

Changes when editing my items are not saving. It is so frustrating when even the simplest things don’t work.

I’ve never been able to get the shipping profiles to update, so it’s not new. I’m in Canada and it’s SO HARD to get shipping to work easily.

I want to have something I can auto-update when the rates change because it’s just too time-consuming to do it one at a time. Batch edit doesn’t really work because you can’t sort one class of mail into a group to edit all at once, therefore, some of my listings have shipping costs that are years out of date. Not very useful, so I’ve been not listing new items until I can figure out how to make them work.

I used to use the bannerfans website, but they seem to have gone tits-up. Yes, they are still there, but they don’t work. I inserted banners as images in my listing, and then, when the rates changed, I just changed each banner and my listings were updated.
