Stamps.com (NASDAQ: STMP) has announced a historic new discount for its customers who mail single piece letters.
Using Stamps.com software, a one ounce letter costs just 48 cents instead of the new 49 cents rate required elsewhere. Stamps.com said this is the first time in history that such a single piece letter discount has been made available by the USPS.
“The increase in postage this year is a painful nearly seven percent jump from USD0.46 to USD0.49 but Stamps.com users get a nice price break as they only have to pay four percent more at USD0.48,” said Ken McBride, Stamps.com chairman and CEO. “Stamps.com and the USPS are doing their part to try to help small businesses save money and continue to recover and thrive in this economy.”
Stamps.com is the provider of Internet-based postage services to nearly 500,000 customers. Stamps.com´s service enables customers to print US Postal Service-approved postage with just a computer, printer and Internet connection, right from their homes or offices.
