If the price of a First-Class Mail stamp is $0.47, why are Printable Postage and DYMO Stamps printing $0.465 stamps? Are my letters going to be rejected?

With the price change effective April 10, 2016, the USPS decreased rates for specific USPS mail classes. Metered Mail (PC Postage) users receive a half-cent discount when using DAZzle, Endicia for Mac, DYMO Stamps, Printable Postage, Endicia Professional, Platinum Shipper, and Endicia Label Server.

As a result, your postage balance, amounts in the applications, and reports will show up to three decimal places.

Your letters will not be rejected.

As of April 10, 2016, the Retail and PC Postage and customized postage rates for First-Class Mail stamps are:

Weight  Retail Rate  PC Postage Rate
1 oz.  $0.47  $0.465
2 oz.  $0.68  $0.675
3 oz.  $0.89  $0.885
3.5 oz.  $1.10  $1.095

The price for additional ounces is $0.21 per ounce.
