Simplifying Threshold Volume Requirements for USPS Return
On September 11, 2014, we published a Federal Register interim rule to revise standards to change the total annual volume thresholds required for USPS™ Return Services products to qualify for Commercial Plus® pricing. A minimum volume of 50,000 will be established for these products across the board to simplify the product and make it easier for customers to do business with the Postal Service™. The interim rule is effective September 15, 2014.
We encourage mailers to comment on or before November 10, 2014. See the entire notice on the Federal Register site at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2014-09-11/html/2014-21510.htm or later this week on the Postal Explorer® website at pe.usps.com.
