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; regardless of which carrier(s) or service(s) you use, these changes will affect you.

Not to worry! As we have over the past six years, the ShippingEasy team has developed our award-winning guide to help you navigate the changes and get the most out of every penny you spend on shipping 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 they affect your business.
  • Find the most cost-effective carrier, however you need to ship: At-a-glance tables allows you to quickly determine which carrier and service are best for a package based on its weight, destination zone, and delivery time. The guide also helps you find alternative services (e.g. USPS First-Class Package Service®, USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate®, or USPS Priority Mail Regional Rate® boxes) that may save you even more.
  • See how the changes impact real-world e-commerce businesses: Over the years, we’ve collected a ton of customer data. This allows us to calculate the impact of the planned rate increases for specific shipping situations in various business types—and how you can lower the impact by looking at alternative carriers and/or services.
