U.S. Postal Service’s First-Class Mail Parcel Rate Change

USPS Parcel With LabelAn approximate 7% increase on First-Class Mail Parcels (FCMP) weighing 1-3 ounces, will be implemented by the United States Postal Service (USPS) starting August 28th, 2016.

Parcel (1-3 oz.) Current Rate New Rate
First-Class Mail Parcel Retail $2.45 $2.62
First-Class Mail Parcels containing keys or identification devices $3.27 $3.44

Rate changes will correct an anomaly created with this past January’s rate increase, which resulted in retail prices for 1-3 ounce FCMP being lower than Commercial prices for similar items. Commercial Base Prices are normally lower than retail prices.

These price adjustments are USPS planned rates changes for August.
