2010 New Shipping Services Prices Announced

Today the Postal Service announced the 2010 Shipping Services prices which take effect January 4, 2010.

Some of our innovative approaches for Priority Mail are:

  • cubic volume-based pricing for large commercial Priority Mail shippers;

  • a decrease in the domestic Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope retail price;

  • a new Priority Mail Flat Rate padded envelope for Commercial Plus shippers.

Please note that prices for First-Class Mail, Standard Mail, Parcel Post and other mailing services products will not change.

A complete listing of the 2010 Shipping Services prices is available on Postal Explorer at under the "Jan. 4 2010 Price Change" button.
