Posted October 16, 2020

"The Postal Regulatory Commission has approved USPS plans to temporarily raise commercial domestic parcel product prices in the fall. This rate increase will impact shippers using Commercial Base pricing on five specific mail classes:

  • Priority Mail Express
  • Priority Mail
  • First-Class Package Service
  • Parcel Select
  • Parcel Return Service.

The temporary price adjustments are in response to heightened package volume due to the coronavirus pandemic, as well as expected increases in online shopping during the holidays. The rate increase will take effect Oct. 18 and continue until Dec. 27, 2020."

Just Buttons will try to keep shipping costs as low as we can so our customers are not greatly impacted by this rate increase. if you have any questions about shipping with USPS please email us at info@justbuttons.org or call us at 1-800-564-2924.
