WASHINGTON — Americans are expected to make Cyber Monday 2016 the largest ever and the U.S. Postal Service, the largest e-commerce deliverer, is ready.

According to market researcher Adobe Digital Insights, Cyber Monday sales will exceed $3 billion, an increase of 9.4 percent over last year.

Mailers are given the Full-Service discount at the time of mailing. After the postage statement is finalized, verifications are performed on the eDoc to ensure Full-Service requirements are met. Verification errors will be logged against pieces that do not meet the Full-Service requirements. These errors are identified as being postage assessment eligible when the total pieces in error, for a specific requirement, have exceeded an established error threshold. When this occurs, the USPS will identify the responsible eDoc submitter associated to the CRID (Customer Registration Identification) and issue a postage assessment against the eDoc submitter that presented the mailings to the Postal Service.
