USPS rates go up today for most USPS services and fees. Fortunately, for the most popular service our sellers use, Domestic Priority Mail, there is no increase this year (and prices were actually reduced last Sept). That goes for the domestic flat rate boxes as well. Domestic Priority Express also avioids the hike
Increases do include:
On the "plus" side, tracking is now free for all USPS services. And the cost of a First Class letter stamp holds at 49 cents!
The most important news, however, is that USPS continues to avoid moving, at least this year, to "dimensional" rates. This means a big savings for lighter, larger packages when compared to UPS and Fedex.
