In the Zone: TrueShip Flat Rate Select(TM) Soars in Popularity as Shipments Increases by 1,000% in First Quarter

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- TrueShip (http://www.trueship.com), maker of ReadyShipper™ shipping software, has been in the zone since the fourth quarter of last year. In early November, the company launched their much anticipated Flat Rate Select™ discount USPS option, helping thousands of their customers enjoy Priority Mail discounts on shipped packages that were 20 pounds or less. Since Q4 of 2013, their Flat Rate Select™ shipments have increased by over 1,000%. The company is predicting that by Q4 of 2014, the shipments will have a year-to-date increase of over 8,000%.

Priority Mail via USPS is beloved by ecommerce businesses because of the speed of delivery and affordable pricing options, but the price does rise quickly as the shipment weight and distance increases. Flat rate boxes and envelopes relieve some of that pricing increase, though. This is true only if your products fit into preset standard box sizes, and only if you use USPS branded boxes.

With the exclusive Flat Rate Select™ discount USPS shipping option offered by TrueShip, smaller businesses can take advantage of these economical volume discounts on packages up to 20 pounds without having to meet bulk shipping volume requirements or sign any long term contracts.

As an included option in ReadyShipper™ shipping software, Flat Rate Select™ also features teaser rates for users, who can then consider using this option to reduce their shipping cost. With a feasible weight limit and generous dimensions on package sizes, businesses can better predict and estimate future shipping costs.

TrueShip includes a handy and easy-to-use rate calculator that can provide instant rate estimations on any shipment. Users simply enter in the dimensions of their package and the calculator estimates the shipping rate for them.

"With Flat Rate Select™, you no longer have to be a juggernaut like Amazon or EBay to offer low shipping prices and fast delivery," explained Daniel Koernke, President of Sales. "Using this convenient discount option, which is already included in ReadyShipper™ shipping software, medium and small-sized online businesses can better compete with the big boys on shipping rates."
