USPS Flat Rate Envelopes
Posted by Doug Sherman (Import), Last modified by Doug Sherman on 21 Jan 17 07:13 PM
The US Postal Service offers Flat Rate envelopes for Domestic and International Priority and Express services.
Our rate engine supports this option for all products except the Mals plugin.
Item dimensions must be available for all items so that our rate engine can determine if the items fit. The dimensions of your item(s) cannot exceed 12 x 9 x 0.75.

For both Priority and Express Mail International, there is a 4 lb limit on your envelope weight.
If you have the option selected in your AuctionInc account for checking for flat rate envelope eligibilty (Carrier Settings page), the shipping calculator will attempt to use the prepaid envelopes under the following conditions:
If you are subscribed to ShopCart, your customer has selected Priority or Express mail, and at least one package in the order qualifies for the flat rat envelope, you will see "FRE" in our shipping "item" in your PayPal or Amazon order detail.
If you are subscribed to one of our plugins. the code will be in the Packaging Detail in your order.
(If there are multiple packages that have been packaged into any of the flat rate envelopes or boxes, the code will read "Multiple FRB". You may want to put the order items into your cart and use our Shipping Inspector to view the exact packaging that was rated.)
These codes are also returned in our Shipping Rates API.
