Avoid the myths about Priority Mail — The guide helps to identify facts about Priority Mail.

Find low-cost Priority Mail Regional Rates for nationwide shipping — Many shippers think that Regional Rate boxes are only for local shipments in the same region because “Regional” appears in the name. Using the guide will show that Regional Rate boxes are cost-effective for nationwide shipments as well as local shipments.

Find the best Priority Mail Flat Rate for heavy packages — If you are shipping heavy packages, there is no cheaper option than Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes. Using the guide demonstrates this as well.
