POSTNET Barcode Discontinuation

The Postal Service has announced the retirement of the POSTNET barcode for automation price eligibility effective January 28, 2013.

To continue to be eligible for automation prices, mailings of postcards, letter- and flat-size mailpieces will need to have an Intelligent Mail barcode (IMb). In addition, Permit Reply Mail and Qualified Business Reply Mail (QBRM) will be required to have an Intelligent Mail barcode.
