USPS® has announced a temporary price change to Commercial Domestic Parcels only:

- First-Class Package Service

- Parcel Return Service
Retail prices for these services are not changing.

Zip Zone Changes
From time to time, the USPS will make changes to ZIP Codes and Zones. It is important that you update your meter whenever there is a change.
The USPS® Zone Charts Matrix helps you apply the proper postage rates to a mail piece.
Postage rates for zoned mail are calculated based on:
- mail piece weight and
- the distance the mail piece travels
The matrix determines the distance a mail piece travels based on the first three digits of:
- the ZIP Code™ you are mailing from (origination) and
- the ZIP Code you are mailing to (destination)
