Piece Rate - Third class mail breaks into two main streams, third class bulk (for discounts) and third class piece rate. For the price of a first class stamp, a piece weighing up to 3-1/2 ounces may be placed in the mail stream without any prior sortation. This charge is substantially greater than the unit charge for third class bulk mail, and this differential is bound to increase. Mail that is not presorted is charged at the piece rate.
