USPS Postage Calcualtor

Posted by helen on January 23, 2011

some websites are constantly changing  the  appearances. most of the changes are BAD, you’d think these web designers are just trying to keep themselves busy so they can hold their jobs, such as: eBay.com, Barbiecollector.com… the more changes they make, the harder  for you to navigate…

some websites make changes as they want to trick you up and make you pay more, such as USPS.com.  here is an example to show you the recent  changes on Usps Postage Calculator:

I am trying to send a 2LB- package from NY to AL,  the priority mail postage is $7.15, but the calcualtor only shows you  express mail rate  $26.35 , other choices are hidden,  unless you click  further, you will not see the regular rate.   USPS believes if they hide all the other economic choices,  some dumb people would just use the most expensive method to mail the package.

http://postcalc.usps.gov/MailServices.aspx?m=6&p=2&o=0&dz=35244&oz=10012&pob=0&MailingDate=1/24/2011&MailingTime=8:00%20AM

I am not the only one hates changes like this.
