The Postal Service is expanding the capabilities of its Mailing Online program to let customers use the service for international deliveries.
Under the program, customers can send postcards, booklets, letters and other flat mail via the Internet with a few clicks of the mouse to upload their documents and address lists. The Postal Service then prints, folds, inserts, addresses and applies the postage for each piece of mail, which is mailed the next business day.
Until recently, Mailing Online customers could only send domestic mail, but the Postal Service has added a new link
on its Web site that lets users select an international address.
'Many small business owners are expanding into foreign markets or offering products overseas,' said Nick Barranca, vice president of the Postal Service's product development office. 'Giving customers the option of sending the direct mail pieces they create through Mailing Online overseas is one more way the Postal Service is responding to the needs of our customers.'
