Update on USPS.com price changes

By: Shan Lian | January 21, 2016

 

As you all may know by now, the USPS updated their rates and services this past Sunday, January 17th. They also updated the rates they offer on USPS.com – we wanted to share a few details about this update below:

  • USPS.com now only offers retail rates for purchase, the same as what you’d get by walking into the post office.
  • First Class, and Media Mail are also not available on USPS.com

In order to benefit from commercial discounted rates, working with a shipping partner like Shippo is your best bet!

We currently offer Commercial Base pricing for First Class and all international shipments, and below Commercial Base for Priority Mail.
