Prepare for the holidays by understanding some of the USPS shipping deadlines.
|Service||Shipping Cutoff Date|
|Retail Ground™||Wednesday, December 15th, 2021|
|First Class Mail®||Friday, December 17th, 2021|
|Priority Mail®||Monday, December 20th, 2021|
|Priority Mail Express®||Thursday, December 23rd, 2021|
Remember that customers ordering close to Christmas are most likely expecting their packages to arrive before then. We encourage you to add the cut off date(s) so that your customers are aware of when is the last day they can purchase to receive their Christmas packages on time.
Just like there are shipping cut off dates, there are also shipping price increases. Be sure to make these changes accordingly if you do not want to pay extra money.

P.S. One of the most important things you can do for your business is to pray for it every day.
Verse of the week: Philippians 4:6-7 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
