When the USPS switched First Class Retail Packages to zone-based pricing in January, they added insult to injury by making customers use an online price calculator that requires a bunch of clicking and scrolling.

So, I created a dedicated calculator for determining First Class package rates. It requires just one click, and it's one more click to find the best combination of stamps to use.

Find it here: First Class Package Price Calculator

Thank you. It is a good service as it comes with tracking and seems to travel at the same speed as a flat rate priority mail envelope.

Excellent Resource! Thank You!

When mailing first class package items from home that do not exceed 10oz per USPS rules, do you write down First Class Package on the envelope so the carrier knows what that's the shipping method you want to use vs Priority Mail for example?
