USPS To End Hard-Copy Postage Statements
WASHINGTON, DC — The Postal Service is proposing to discontinue the use of hardcopy postage statements for domestic commercial mailings, as stated in a Federal Register Notice on February 13. The use of hardcopy postage statements for Every Door Direct Mail—Retail (EDDM-R) and international mailings will not be affected by this proposed revision.
The Postal Service is proposing to implement this change effective January 21, 2024.
Currently, unless manifested using eVS or mailings entered under the full-service automation program, domestic commercial mailers had the option to submit a completed hardcopy or electronic postage statement for any mailing claiming a discount and all permit imprint mailings.
