United States Postal Service

USPS Shipping Options

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) provides residential and commercial delivery for your eCommerce packages. Unlike other privately-owned carriers, the USPS ensures that every single residence in the entire United States—including places that are rural, remote, and hard to reach—has a way to receive mail. They offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of online retail stores, including flat-rate shipping options:


  • First Class Mail®
  • First-Class Package Service®
  • First-Class Package International Service®
  • Priority Mail®
  • Priority Mail International®
  • Priority Mail USPS Cubic®
  • Priority Mail Express®
  • Priority Mail Express International®
  • Parcel Select®

When Shipping with USPS Makes Sense for Your Business


Using the USPS caters to the needs of small businesses, and can save you a lot of time and money with USPS shipping rates and USPS postage because:


  • You won’t pay hidden fees or surcharges, like fuel surcharges, address corrections, rural delivery fees, and more than some private carriers charge
  • Your large, lightweight packages will ship for less because the USPS doesn’t use dimensional weight (package size) to determine shipping costs
  • Your small, heavy packages will ship for less with USPS flat-rate packages
  • You and your customers can track packages from your warehouse to the final destination with multiple scanning events that keeps you updated on the exact location at any given time and provides accurate delivery estimates
  • You have more options for global delivery that allow you to choose speedy service when it matters, or affordable options when savings is important
  • There is likely to be a USPS retail location near you, with more than 31,000 post offices and other facilities where you can mail your packages
