USPS Commercial Pricing shipping rates

Unlike other shipping software, Pirate Ship doesn't add any markup, label fees, or monthly costs, so you get the deepest discounts that USPS offers, but with no volume commitments or additional costs.

USPS shipping rates come in 3 pricing tiers:

  1. Retail Pricing is the most expensive shipping rate pricing tier, and it’s what you’ll pay if you purchase postage directly from USPS at the Post Office or on
  2. Commercial Pricing® offers discounts up to 89% off Retail Pricing.
  3. Connect eCommerce™ is a new pricing level that's automatically available on Pirate Ship, offering additional savings up to $6.54 cheaper than Commercial Pricing!

In 2019 USPS changed their pricing structure, merging the two Commercial Pricing discount tiers they previously had, Commercial Base Pricing and Commercial Plus Pricing. You may see other shipping software continue to advertise with those names in an attempt to confuse you or conceal hidden markup on top of the actual costs.

In 2022 USPS launched the new Connect eCommerce pricing level, which offers additional discounts below Commercial Pricing when using Pirate Ship.

Some services (like Media Mail®) do not have any discounts available. But no matter which shipping service you use, with Pirate Ship you'll get the the cheapest rates USPS offers, with no markup or fees.

Get the best USPS pricing with no volume commitments or monthly fees

Pirate Ship gives you access to the deepest Commercial Pricing discounts in seconds—no matter how many packages you ship—by consolidating your volume with other small shippers. There are no monthly fees, label fees, or hidden costs of any kind. All you pay is the actual cost for any USPS postage that you want to purchase.

Pirate Ship offers USPS Commercial Pricing with no markup or fees

While some shipping software claims they offer Commercial Pricing, if you look carefully at their rates they’re actually adding tons of markup on top of the actual cost.

Adding markup makes those software companies a lot of money, but it makes it harder for startups and small shippers to compete with established ecommerce companies.

By passing through Commercial Pricing with no markup or fees, Pirate Ship gives you the highest volume discounts available with absolutely no markup, so you can save more and invest in growing your business faster.

Call us pirates, but we think the way other shipping software overcharges for USPS services is greedy, with no benefit for small shippers or the Postal Service. Shipping costs are expensive enough as it is; you shouldn’t have to get nickel and dimed on top.

That’s why we work directly with USPS to pass-through the deepest discounts available for all their shipping services with absolutely no extra costs. There’s no cheaper way to buy postage from USPS than with Pirate Ship!
