"Bulk mail" is the term used by the USPS for large mailings that can qualify for reduced postage costs. This applies to commercial First Class Mail and Marketing Mail (also know as Standard Mail). Reduced prices are available for other classes of mail, too. You should know that the USPS often uses the terms "bulk" and "presorted" interchangeably.
Bulk mail costs are lower than single piece prices. A regular stamp on a letter is a single piece postage. Many mailers pay this postage rate even though they have a large mailing. This is typically because they don’t want to do the extra preparation work. So how do you decide if your own mail should take this approach or if commercial prices are better for you? And are all commercial prices the same and how much are they? The Postal Service prices are lower for bulk mailings because part of what they would do is done by someone else (for example, sorting the mail by Zip Code or transporting the mail to a destination postal facility). The benefits from "work-sharing" are realized in cost and sometimes by expediency. We are able to provide many of these services to help get your total cost as low as possible.
In order to mail at commercial prices, you need to get a mailing permit (permission to mail) and pay an annual mailing fee for each class of mail; First-Class Mail or Standard Mail. (Conquest customers, in many cases, are allowed to use Conquests’ mailing permits, which are held at multiple postal locations. Ask us how.) You can pay your USPS permit via postage by pre-canceled stamps, postage meter, or permit imprint. You also need to choose the size, shape and weight of your mail pieces, and make sure your address list is correct. Then, presort the mail pieces by Zip Code. With that done, you can take your mailings to the Post Office where you have your mailing permit.
