Standard Mail Move Update Postponed – Confirm Service Prices Adjusted

 

We filed an amended notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission to postpone the Move Update noncompliance charge for Standard Mail and to adjust our prices for Confirm service.

 

We extended implementation of the Standard Mail Move Update noncompliance charge from May 11, 2009, to January 4, 2010. The charge applies to Standard Mail mailings that fail to fully comply with the Move Update standards. Delaying implementation allows extra time to provide our Standard Mail customers with additional feedback from our new postage verification systems, but does not relieve mailers of their obligation to comply with the Move Update standard if they intend to claim automation or Presort prices.

 

The new Move Update verification procedures will not be used to assess additional postage for First-Class Mail or Standard Mail at the time of mailing until January 2010.  However, as noted above, customers are still required to comply with the Move Update standards in the DMM.

 

We also adjusted our May 11 prices for Confirm service by eliminating separate mailing agent and owner subscription prices. All Confirm subscribers will the pay the same subscription price, based on service level.
