If you get registered with the post office you can get a number called an MID or mailer ID.

 

It's something that you should be able to have in encoded in the tick marks on first class letters and flats. It allows people to see where they are in the post office system without having first class tracking.

 

For those who ship a lot of letters and flats, allowing us to use our own MID's instead of stamps.com's would allow us to provide better service to our customers.

Hey dbminting,

So, we recently got those MID's and CRID's for our two additional locations we plan to ship from. I was wondering if these ID's need to be added somewhere in Shipstation in order to get the USPS discounts? I have been told by our USPS rep they are tied to our discounts. Thanks!

That's what I'm talking about, it's something that they should allow as a feature but don't.

This would be a great feature to be added.

In order to offer tracking service to my customers, I am currently using USPS first-class package service even for small and light items that can fit in a letter envelope. I would be able to save about $3 or more per order if I could use first-class mail letter service instead. This could be a game changer for low-priced items. I noticed that eBay and Etsy are offering this feature already if the labels are purchased through their website. ShipStation, please add this feature.
