How Will The Updates Affect Your Mailings?
There are some changes coming to the U.S. Postal Service (USPS)!
The USPS is launching a new payment system called Enterprise Payment System (EPS) that will replace the current CAPS account system. If you currently pay for postage through a CAPS Debit or a CAPS Trust account, this change will directly affect you. As a mail service provider to many of our beloved clients, we wanted to provide you with all the information pertinent to these changes. Don’t worry though; there’s plenty of time to work through these changes, as the CAPS accounts will not be retired until April 2019.
These resources will help you to understand the changes to come.
