Removal of USPS Regional Rates | FAQs

The USPS announced the removal of their Regional Rate service option beginning on January 22, 2023.

We've compiled the following FAQs to help ensure a smooth transition away from this service.

What can I do with my Regional Rate boxes?

You may ship them as a Priority Mail package with the proper dimensions:

  • A1 is a top-loading box, 10" x 7" x 4-3/4"

  • A2 is a side-loading box, 10-15/16" x 2-3/8" x 12-13/16"

  • B1 is a top-loading box, 12" x 10-1/4" x 5" 7.67

  • B2 is a side-loading box, 14-3/8" x 2-7/8" x 15-7/8"

If cubic pricing is available based on weight, ShippingEasy will automatically apply cubic pricing:

  • Regional Rate Box A: Cubic rates will apply for shipments over 1lb.

  • Regional Rate Box B: Cubic rates will apply for shipments over 3 lbs.

What if I had Shipping Rules associated with Regional Rate?

These shipping rules will be automatically archived and will not run for the orders.

You will no longer see them in your shipping rules.

What if I have a Preset with a Regional Rate?

These presets will be removed from the ShippingEasy app.

The Instant Rate column will no longer display this preset as one that is applied to the order.

What if I had orders on BATCHES with the Regional Rate Preset?

Orders on BATCHES will be sent back to the ORDERS page.
