Priority Mail® from the US Postal Service® is typically the most affordable shipping option for ecommerce retailers.

A favorite quip of Amine Khechfé, co-founder and general manager of Endicia, goes something like this: “If you’re not using the USPS, then you’re leaving money on the table.”
There’s merit to his saying – the USPS typically offers the most economical pricing for shipping packages weighing less than ten pounds. As an ecommerce retailer, no doubt saving money is top of your list, and that’s where Priority Mail comes into play.
Priority Mail, featuring delivery to most domestic locations in just 1-3 days, is a fast and affordable option that offers a lot of value.
There are 3 service categories available through Priority Mail and all service categories include no extra cost for Saturday or residential delivery, free Package Pickup™, free Delivery Confirmation™ Tracking, and free packaging from the USPS. Free USPS packaging and supplies include a wide variety of boxes, Tyvek mailing bags, paperboard and padded envelopes, as well as a range of labels and decals.
