Update Lower Flat-Rate Box Price and New Standards for First-Class Mail Nonmachinable Surcharge

 

After a reconsideration by the Postal Regulatory Commission, we are lowering the price for the Priority Mail flat-rate box to $8.95 from the previously recommended $9.15, and extending the $0.17 nonmachinable surcharge to all nonmachinable single-piece and presorted First-Class Mail letters, regardless of weight. These changes are effective with the May 14 pricing change.

 

We updated the Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) with these changes in HTML and PDF formats on usps.com/ratecase. We also updated the Ratefold and the Quick Service Guides, and published our Federal Register final rule for the reconsidered items [TXT] | [PDF]. We encourage you to reference these materials as you prepare for the pricing change.
