Absent Congressional or court action to extend or make permanent an existing exigent surcharge for mailing products and services, the Postal Service will be required to reduce certain prices on Sunday, April 10, 2016. First class postage for a forever stamp is going down to $ .47.
Automation discount rates are going down as well. The new 5 digit automation rate for 1 and 2 ounce letters will be $ .376. Good news for our mailing clients!
Further details of the price reductions can be found at www.pe.usps.gov.
As a result of this reduction, an update is required to our client’s AutoMail installation. This update can be applied any time prior to the April 11, 2016 cutoff date. Detailed instructions were provided in an email to all AutoMail users. If you need assistance, please contact our support team – AutoMail Support at (800)898-2540 option 2.
