WHY USPS?

The U.S. Postal Service® is an essential part of the shipping mix for today’s e-commerce
businesses. Regardless of the size of your business or how many packages you ship, using
Endicia to access the USPS can help save you money and create a great customer experience.
NO “HIDDEN” FEES OR SURCHARGES
 
The USPS does not charge extra fees for services like address correction, rural delivery or Saturday delivery. And, with USPS there are never any fuel surcharges – the Private carriers, like FedEx and UPS, charge up to 5.25% for fuel and up to $3.65 per package for Residential delivery for a ground shipment.
 
MOST AFFORDABLE
FOR LIGHT AND
MEDIUM-WEIGHT
PACKAGES
FedEx and UPS use Dimensional (DIM) Weight (the size of the package) to determine the rate charged for a package – for large, lightweight shipments this can increase the cost dramatically, not including the added surcharges!
END-TO-END
PACKAGE TRACKING
The USPS provides up to 11 scan events per package – that’s on par with FedEx and UPS. You and your customers will always know the status of your package.
