I bought a digital scale to try to more accurately stamp my books going out. I tried to look up costs with the USPS link posted above (thanks!).
Media rates say up to 1 LB $2.41 , up to 2 LB $2.82 , up to 3LB $3.23 ...... and on
Nowhere does it give the cost of extra ounces. I thought that was part of the equation and why I bought the digital scale.
My question is - are prices just this flat rate by pound? I use PBC DC, just add an extra $.19?
Thanks for any help.

With "first class parcel" rate, it is cheaper to use this rate up to 7 oz. That DOES go by ounces, and 6 to 7 oz. is $2.39, 5 to 6 oz. is $ 2.22, 4 to 5 oz. is $2..05 ( they go up or down by 17c per oz. whereas above 1 lb., the media rate goes up by 41c per pound. I have found that the estimated postage that PBS provides is VERY OFTEN incorrect, may be too much or too little, so I weigh EVERYTHING and put more or less postage oon stuff that I send out.
