On January 17, 2016 USPS eliminated the online price that was being offered to shippers using the USPS website. This price was called the “Online Price” on the website but it is actually the USPS Commercial Base Price. USPS now only offers Commercial Base pricing for high volume customers. If you ship parcels but don’t have high volumes you can only get Commercial Base pricing by using other electronic1458336755_tmp_shutterstock_120155278 postage solutions (i.e. shipgooder.com). These rates are often 10% to 50% off the retail rates and can save shippers significant money.

For example, if you are a ShipGooder customer, you will receive these discounted prices even if you only ship one package a year.

So, without further ado, here are the four reasons you should choose sites like shipgooder.com . They will save you both time and money. 

  1. Your products are light-weight (between 1 lbs and 4 lbs), and you are in Zone 1 – 8. See below examples:

Finding cost effective shipping rates is a must for all retailers in e-commerce. To succeed in this competitive space and keep customers happy, shipping cannot be seen as a barrier for customers. Online retailers need to do research to find the best solution for every shipment.

Carriers are willing to give high volume shippers lower prices. While low volume shippers will benefit from USPS Commercial Base Pricing discounts after using an electronic postage solution such as ShipGooder.
