On August 11, the United States Postal Service filed volume incentives for Marketing Mail and First-Class Mail, with the Postal Regulatory Commission, which would start on January 1, 2024, and run through the entire year. A mailer is eligible for the incentive when its combined volume of qualifying pieces exceeds the incentive threshold. Qualifying pieces include Marketing Mail Letters and High Density/Saturation Letters; Marketing Mail Flats and High Density/Saturation Flats & Parcels; or Marketing Mail Carrier Route or Parcels. For every qualifying piece mailed in calendar year 2024 after the first million pieces, mailers receive a credit equal to 30 percent of the average per-piece price paid for all qualifying volume.
