What is the cost of DC on books?  My PO is charging $0.90 per book.

Are you wanting to buy it at the post office or are you paying the fee and printing it off of PBS with you mailing label?

The green form you buy at the post office is 90 cents and the electronic delivery confirmation either bought with the PBS DC mailing label is 19 or 20 cents.

Counter Delivery Confirmation is .90, it used to be the green banded sticker but is now white with a pink band (printed at the counter same as postage strips).

If you print USPS Tracking (previously e-DC) through PBS  the site fee is .30 and the USPS charge is .20.  Unfortunately, when USPS updated their software for the rate change in late January, it changed how the pre-printed e-DC scans into their computers...alot of PO's have not been informed as to the new procedure, and therefore attempt to void pre-printed e-DC and add their own .90 option.  There's a long thread on this with info and directions.
