The E-Commerce Seller’s Guide to 2021 Shipping Rate Changes

All the major carriers—USPS, FedEx, and UPS—are rolling out price increases for 2021; and these changes will be top of mind for your customers.

Not to worry! As we have over the past six years, the ShippingEasy team has developed our award-winning guide to help you navigate your customers through the upcoming changes and show them how to save with USPS in 2021. Our E-commerce Seller’s Guide to 2021 Shipping Rate Changes is the only resource you’ll need to:

  • Understand and compare the changes across all major carriers: The guide includes a side-by-side comparison of the changes and guidance on how to interpret them for your customers’ specific businesses.
  • Find the most cost-effective carrier for a given set of shipping parameters: At-a-glance tables allow merchants to quickly determine which carrier and service are best for a package based on its weight, destination zone, and delivery time (e.g. overnight, 2-3 days, and greater than 3-days), and whether there are alternative services (e.g. USPS First-Class Package Service®, USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate®, or USPS Priority Mail Regional Rate® boxes) that may be even more cost-effective.
  • See how the changes impact real-world e-commerce businesses:
    Using years of proprietary, anonymous ShippingEasy customer data, we calculate the impact of the planned rate increases for specific shipping situations in various business types—and how the impact can be mitigated by looking at alternative options.
