EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2014) - Stamps.com® (
"The increase in postage this year is a painful nearly seven percent jump from $0.46 to $0.49 but Stamps.com users get a nice price break as they only have to pay four percent more at $0.48," said Ken McBride, Stamps.com chairman and CEO. "Stamps.com and the USPS are doing their part to try to help small businesses save money and continue to recover and thrive in this economy."
The discount follows a more than decade long effort by Stamps.com to gain recognition for the cost savings that its customers provide to the Postal Service. By avoiding retail locations, bar coding their mail, and pre-cleansing their addresses, Stamps.com customers cost the Postal Service dramatically less than other sales channels.
Stamps.com mailing and shipping software was automatically updated with all the new USPS rates that went into effect today, including the new one cent discount for single piece one ounce letters. This automatic update, which is free for all Stamps.com customers, ensures a seamless transition to the 2014 USPS rates and new shipping services.
