The U.S. Postal Service receives plenty of criticism whenever it makes service changes, but for small and midsize businesses, an upcoming change may actually turn into something positive.

The Postal Service announced over the summer that it was shuttering its reseller program. The program, which allowed companies to resell Postal Service postage offerings (namely commercial rates) to customers, is ending on Oct. 1.

Basically the program helped lower rates for many SMBs that do not have the volumes necessary to get the best rates from the Postal Service or FedEx  and UPS The reseller program, in a nutshell, allowed a third-party company to get a commercial rate from the Postal Service and then sell that rate, with a margin built in, to the SMB, for postal services.
