Implementation of Full-Service Intelligent Mail Required for Automation Prices

 

Our final rule to modify eligibility requirements for mailers to quality for automation prices was published in today’s Federal Register. Effective January 26, 2014, use of “full-service” Intelligent Mail® will be required to obtain automation prices for postcards (First-Class Mail® only), letters, and flats when using the following services: First-Class Mail, Standard Mail®, and Periodicals; and for flats mailed at Bound Printed Matter prices.

 

This final rule is the result of an extensive collaboration with the mailing industry.
