When choosing how to mail or ship something, there are usually several factors to consider. Here are the top 5 reasons why to choose to shipping using the USPS.
You can create my labels online, print them and then schedule the postal carrier to pick up from your home the next day. If I have to send it the same day, then you can still print the label from my home or office and then drop it off at the post office. Because you have already labeled it, you do not have to wait in the long lines at the post office. Just leave it at the front desk or drop it in the outgoing mail bin.
If you shipping a package that is 13 ounces, then you can ship it first class. This is the most inexpensive way to ship something. This should cost you no more than $3.50. The minimum price to ship the same package by UPS would be almost $12.00! Remember too, that UPS calculates their prices by the distance that they have to travel. First class mail does not. Also, if you use an online service to create your labels, you get a discount on all of your shipping costs.
