USPS Gets PRC OK for a 2017 Price Rise.

The following portion was written by Heather Fletcher and originally published by Target Marketing on November 17, 2016.

USPS prices are going up in 2017. First Class mail goes from 47 to 49 cents on Jan. 22, with other products seeing varying price increases.

On Tuesday, the PRC approved all postage raises USPS requested, except for Special Services price adjustments. The PRC filing says the commission didn’t receive information about those requests in time.

“Barring any unforeseen issues,” reads the PRC filing, “the commission expects to issue the separate order well in advance of the expected January 22, 2017, implementation date.”

So market-dominant price increases are slated for First Class mail, Standard Mail, Periodicals and Package Services, as direct mailers… learned matter-of-factly on Wednesday.
