On September 3rd, 2017 - the USPS is implementing changes to their First Class Mail Parcels. First Class Mail Parcels is a retail rate category of the First Class Package Service. The service is available from the USPS Post Office.
NOTE: these changes impact a retail service. ShippingEasy subscribers will not see a change to the rates available within ShippingEasy. Learn more about USPS rates available in ShippingEasy.
First Class Mail Parcels will be renamed "First-Class Package Service - Retail" (FCPS-Retail). In turn, the existing "First-Class Package Service" (FCPS) price category will be renamed “First-Class Package Service – Commercial” (FCPS-Commercial).
The new FCPS-Retail product has the same characteristics as the former First-Class Mail Parcels product.
NOTE: ShippingEasy subscribers access FCPS-Commercial rates. See ShippingEasy's rates.
