Business mail is a broad term used to describe many different types of mailing and shipping services geared towards business class mailing.
“Business mail” generally assumes one will be “bulk mailing” meaning you or your company ships hundreds of letters or packages every day.
To break it down, business mail breaks down different types of shipping methods based on “classes.” These classes vary in what and how much you mail, the prices of the respective class services, and so on.
One of the most commonly used classes of business mail is “bulk mail”. Bulk mail is a class which generally utilizes first-class and standard USPS mailing.
