Priority Mail Express
Priority Mail Express is the fastest USPS service, even offering overnight delivery. Guaranteed delivery in 1-3 days. [Learn more about USPS Priority Mail Express].
Priority Mail Express rates are based on parcel weight, dimensions or packaging, distance, and rate class.
When a custom package is used, parcel weight and dimensions are used to determine postage costs. Costs increase as weight and dimensions increase. [Learn how dimensions affect rates].
Postage costs also increase as the distance increases. USPS uses Zones to measure the distance a domestic shipment must travel, ranging from Zone 1 (local) to Zone 9 (very far away). [Learn more about Zones].
Flat Rate services require specially marked envelopes that receive one rate, regardless of distance or weight. If items fit, Flat Rate envelopes are often the lowest cost option. USPS provides packaging at no cost. [Learn how to order supplies].
Retail pricing is offered directly from the USPS at Post Office retail locations or USPS.com. It does not include discounts on postage prices like those received via ShippingEasy. [Learn more about USPS Retail pricing.]
