When it comes to your small business, every cent counts. We know our customers need a solution that’s both cost and time-efficient, especially with the holiday season rapidly approaching. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that starting October 19, 2022, we’ve entered into a renewed agreement with the United States Postal Service. And, this agreement allows us to offer the lowest rates in the industry to all our users.
What are the new USPS rates?
We’ve mentioned that the new USPS rates are great, but what exactly can you expect? Starting today, ShippingEasy customers can take advantage of:
- Savings up to 84% off retail prices
- Up to 15% off Commercial Plus Pricing (CPP) on USPS Priority Mail®
- Merchants who already use Cubic Pricing can take advantage of additional discounts
When will rates go into effect?
The new rates have gone into effect as of October 19, 2022, at 12:01 AM CT. These rates have been automatically enabled on your account, so you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the lowest USPS rates in the industry. All you have to do is log in to ShippingEasy and select your USPS options as usual.
A note about holiday surcharges
USPS has announced they’ll implement their annual USPS Temporary Rate Increase again for the peak holiday season. These increased rates will apply to many of the most popular services offered by USPS and will remain in effect until 12 a.m. Central on January 22, 2023. However, ShippingEasy customers won’t be subject to most holiday surcharges this season! Please note holiday surcharges won’t apply to the weight and zone prices under CPP, but they will apply to those at CPP.
Not sure if you’re exempt from holiday surcharges? We’ll automatically calculate it in-app, so you don’t have to worry about a thing!
What does this mean for my business?
We understand your small business might not have the same resources as bigger retailers, so the shipping costs fall directly on you and your team’s shoulders. That’s why we take shipping costs seriously at ShippingEasy, and that’s why our customers are now guaranteed the lowest shipping rates, regardless of the size of your business or your plan level. With inflation and supply chain issues leaving customers more concerned with shipping costs this holiday shipping season, your shipping rates are more important than ever before. Make your shipping easy with the lowest USPS rates in the shipping industry.
