USPS Commercial Pricing shipping rates

USPS Flat Rate boxes

Unlike other shipping software, Pirate Ship passes through Commercial Pricing with absolutely no markup, label fees, or monthly costs. So you get the deepest discounts that USPS offers commercial shippers, but with no volume commitments or additional costs.

USPS® shipping rates come in 2 pricing tiers:

Fragile shipping tape
  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® is the most discounted shipping rates USPS® offers, with savings of up to 89% for small packages through a secret service this pricing level unlocks, Priority Mail Cubic.

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.

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 commercial rates USPS offers, with no markup or fees.

Measuring tape

To get Commercial Pricing directly from the United States Postal Service you would need to ship at least 50,000 packages/year, go through a long contract and account setup process with USPS, and then pay a middleman to provide software so you can buy postage with your account (USPS doesn't provide any software for business shipping). 

On the other hand, Pirate Ship can give you the exact same Commercial Pricing rates within 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 is the only way to get Commercial Pricing with no markup or fees

While other shipping software claims they offer Commercial Pricing, if you look carefully at their rate sheets 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!
