On June 9th, 2022 the PRC (Postal Regulatory Commission) favorably reviewed the new price changes that will take effect on July 10th, 2022. The most notable change, is the rise in cost for First Class Letters to $0.60 along with some additional changes which can be seen in the table below. Despite this increase, postage meter users still save three cents per letter compared to using physical stamps.
As inflation and increased operating expenses continue, these price adjustments will help the USPS stay on track for their Delivering for America 10-Year Plan. Even with these minor adjustments, the USPS still has some of the lowest letter-mail postage rates in the industry. For more information about their 10-year plan, you can visit the Delivering for America webpage.
