USPS Rate Hikes Got You Down? TrueShip's Flat Rate Select Is Giving Retailers the Competitive Advantage

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - January 28, 2016) - TrueShip ( -- the leading provider of ecommerce shipping software (ReadyShipper) and automated returns management solutions (ReadyReturns) -- is helping online retailers beat the recent USPS rate hikes with their Flat Rate Select discount USPS Priority Mail shipping option.

The USPS rate hike kicked in on January 17, 2016. Not all rates were affected. But a staggering 23.5% increase in rates was rolled out on certain classes of mail. Recent studies have found that the cost of shipping is directly linked to conversions or shopping cart abandonment reasons. One study found that 56% of shoppers abandon the shopping cart due to shipping cost, and 74% want low-cost or free shipping to be offered.

Flat Rate Select is included with each active license of ReadyShipper multicarrier shipping software, a premier ecommerce shipping solution. Flat Rate Select connects ReadyShipper users to advantageous, instant and built-in savings on USPS Priority Mail and Express Mail services on packages up to 20-pounds.

Flat Rate Select gives e-retailers the competitive advantage because they are able to predict their shipping cost in advance (on many of their most commonly shipped items), and they can project the savings, helping to protect their bottom line. What's more, it enables e-retailers to send packages for less via USPS Priority Mail and Express Mail, which means they can offer lower shipping prices with fast delivery to attract more sales.

For online retailers that are curious about how much money they stand to save on shipping with TrueShip's Flat Rate Select, they need only enter their package dimensions and ship-to information on TrueShip's site to get an instant rate.

"Shipping prices and conversions are directly linked in ecommerce," explained Michael Lazar, Director of Online Marketing at TrueShip.

It's a smart, easy and simple way to beat the USPS rate increases while more efficiently and accurately shipping your orders to customers."
