USPS Priority Mail Rate Filing Impacts Merchants
The USPS filed a notice yesterday about its rate plans for Priority Mail, a popular service among online sellers. The filing with the Postal Regulatory Commission included some good news — the Postal Service wants to keep domestic Priority Mail Express and Priority Mail services at their current prices. "It's part of the Postal Service's ongoing pricing strategy to capitalize on strong package growth," according to the agency's announcement. "Priority Mail is the Postal Service's flagship Shipping Services product and is a convenient and fast way to send documents and packages requiring expedited transportation and handling."
