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.

The Postal Service will handle approximately 750 million packages this holiday season, an increase of more than 12 percent over last year. This is double the volume of packages handled just four years ago.

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

Full-Service Assessment Fact Sheet

without comments

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.
