There are eight USPS Shipping Zones for domestic shipments. These zones are based on distance from the point of origin. This means the cost of postage for a specific shipment depends solely upon how close the point of origin and the destination zones are to each other.

Using USPS Postal Zone Chart can help you understand the USPS Postal Zones. This chart will help determine the origin and destination zones for your shipment. You can read the USPS Postal Zone Charts two ways.

  1. There is a personalized chart where you only need to enter the first 3 digits of your zip code and then use the chart to find the destination zip code of the destination. This will tell you what zone you are shipping to.
  2. The second way is to find the shipping zone for a zip code pair. Here, you just need to enter the origin and destination zip code and the specific zone will be displayed.

Understanding the USPS Postal Zones of upmost importance as if the incorrect chart is used buyers could possibly receive packages with postage due or not receive them at all as they will be returned to the point of origin for insufficient postage. It may be a bit time consuming to understand how these zones work but in the long run it is essential to understand so that buyers receive their packages with no postage due to them or have then returned to the shipper due to insufficient postage.
