The USPS announced Monday that it would be offering free shipping for those who have received their mail this week, in an effort to improve its website’s ability to handle more customers per day.
The postal service’s announcement comes a day after it announced that it had received more than 1 million requests for free shipping.
That’s roughly half of the 2.5 million requests it received for the first two weeks of this month.
It will continue to provide free shipping until Oct. 16.
As part of the program, USPS will begin to ship items to people who have requested it, according to the USPS’ announcement.
“Free shipping will continue until the USPS determines that all mail processing equipment is adequate to handle the volume of incoming mail,” the USPS said.
The USPS says that, with the exception of packages containing military-related materials, it is offering free postal mail pickup for all USPS customers, including those who are military members or dependents.
The postal service has a wide range of programs for sending and receiving mail, including mailboxes, post offices, and other facilities.
On Monday, USPS said that the program would not apply to packages that are currently in transit or that were opened, so if you received your package this week and have not received it, you will not receive free shipping through the program.
As the Postal Service began its free mail pickup program on Friday, it was not clear how many customers were eligible for the free shipping, since it was unclear whether the program applied to all customers, or just those who received their packages before Oct. 15.
The Postal Service’s announcement Monday follows a number of recent postal service announcements about its ability to process more mail.
In July, the agency announced that the first mail truck in its service history would arrive on Oct. 1, 2019.
The agency said that it has been able to process up to 300 million letters, packages, and letters between Sept. 1 and Oct. 31, 2019, up from 250 million in the same period last year.
