No Surcharges or Hidden Fees
Did you know private carriers have as many as 60 different surcharges they can add on top of their base price? Surprise… you're paying more than you have to. The USPS has absolutely no surcharges or hidden fees. That includes residential delivery, Saturday delivery, rural delivery area and address correction. Compare USPS rates to FedEx® and UPS®
Easy Payment Options
Pay for your USPS shipping using credit cards, checks, bank drafts, procurement card accounts and ACH debit/credit.

Flexible Pick-up and Drop-Off Services
You can count on the USPS to be there when you need them. Simply schedule a daily pick-up or use the USPS Pick Up on Demand® service to schedule an exact time for pick-up. Depending on volume, the USPS will customize a pick-up service to meet your needs. The USPS also offers more convenient drop-off locations and drop boxes then all other carriers combined.
Free Shipping Supplies
The USPS provides free shipping supplies for select mail classes including Priority Mail Flat Rate packaging. Need a custom size? Want custom graphics? We can provide that, too.
