Permit mailers who manage multiple permits typically pay multiple annual permit fees to deposit mail at several different locations. The Postal Service has launched a new program that offers permit mailers greater flexibility with the opportunity to save money.
The Postal Service has launched the new “Mail Anywhere” service that allows customers to use the same permit at every mailing location. This new service is available to customers who have mailed at a Full‐Service Intelligent Mail level of 90% at the business’ location during the month prior to their request.
Classes of Mail supported by Mail Anywhere include:
- First‐Class letters, postcards and flats
- Standard letters and flats
- Bound Printed Matter flats
- Periodicals* letters and flats
Qualifying permit types include:
- Permit Imprint
- Precanceled stamps
- Metered Mail
- OMAS (future enhancement)
Note: Permit types are not interchangeable (e.g., you cannot use a Precanceled permit to mail via a Permit imprint)
Eligible Submission Methods: Mail Anywhere requires electronic postage statement (eDoc) submission using:
- Postal Wizard (Full-Service)
- Intelligent Mail for Small Business
- Maintain a single permit and centralized account to enter and pay for all mailings across the country
- Local Permit Number or Company Imprint Indicia may be used at any location
- Save $$$ by eliminating multiple annual permit fees
