The United States Postal Service (USPS) has filed two proposals with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC). If approved, the first would offer credits for mailers sending out more than 1 million pieces during calendar year 2024. The second would establish financial incentives to individual high-volume mailers via one-off negotiated service agreements.
Mailers will be required to enroll in each program. Under both proposals, mailers would be eligible for postage credits equivalent to 30% of the amount by which their calendar 2024 volumes exceed 2023 volumes, provided total mail volume in 2024 is more than one million pieces.
If the programs are approved, enrollment will eventually be facilitated through the USPS Business Customer Gateway (https://bit.ly/3OVVjH7). Enrollment would be expected to start in November 2023. At deadline, the Postal Regulatory Commission (https://www.prc.gov/) had not yet posted a schedule for any part of the approval process, including a question and comment period.
