If delivery time is not an important factor and your package weighs less than 1 pound, USPS First Class™ Package Service is impossible to beat, even with the major changes from 2019 and the rate increases in January 2020.
These changes represent a mixture of good and bad news for smaller online shippers, as shown in the table.
