How does Commercial Base Pricing work?

Typically customers who buy postage online automatically receive Commercial Base Pricing when they print a shipping label. Additional requirements may apply depending on the service provider, its digital mailing system, and the use of permit imprints (a mailpiece notation that indicates postage is prepaid). Customers who use digital mailing systems such as postage meters and permit imprints are also eligible for Commercial Base Pricing.
