The USPS will update postage rates starting Sunday, January 27th. Along with other changes, the price of one-ounce stamps will increase $0.05 from $0.50 to $0.55. The price to mail letters over one ounce, however, will decrease by $0.06 per extra ounce from $0.21 to $0.15.
First Class Packages will move to zone-based pricing, so it will cost more to ship these packages longer distances. However, this is still the most affordable option for shipping products under a pound.
You can keep shipping your products the same way you do today, as it’s still the most effective and affordable method. If you’re concerned about the increased shipping costs, you can always update your shipping rate. For more guidance on shipping and postage, refer to the following articles in our Help Center:
