Site News and System Status news


This page is designed to inform our customers of all current up to the minute Billing Pros system status, system issues, changes, updates and important must read customer information.



11/20/22: The United States Postal Service filed notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) of price changes to take effective Jan. 22, 2023. The new rates include a three-cent increase in the price of a First-Class Mail Forever stamp from 60 cents to 63 cents. Presorted bulk mailings that are also first class letter size will also go up in price. This has not been approved yet but usually 9 out of 10 times this will be approved.



9/14/22: We once again added new feature as another payment option. Venmo takes 1 to 3 days to show into our Business account so if you use this payment option please allow extra time for your payment to clear and your Billing and Mailing to be completed.


7/8/22: On July 10th 2022 the United States Postal Service is increasing the cost of a 1st Class Stamp to 60 cents a 2 cent increase. This cost will be added to all first class stamp mailing customers.


4/26/22: new feature You can now select "No Billing" in Group Updates and all the other Billing Type selections making it much easier to set specific customers to:
Paper or PDF Billing = PAPER
Email Billing Only = EMAIL
Paper or PDF and Email Billing = ALL
No Billing = NONE


2/28/22: 3/1/22 We will be increasing all customers billing and mailing per piece costs. Due to the constant rising costs of paper, envelopes, ink and gasoline for postal drop offs we no longer have a choice but to increase our billing and mailing costs. As most of you know we have not raised our processing prices in many many years, only raising costs when the United States Postal Service raises their 1st class stamp prices.


1/25/22: If you didn't save your last 2021 Billing and Mailing Completion email and need it now for your Taxes please let us know and we will re-send it to you.


8/17/21: Starting August 29, 2021 The USPS is raising their 1st class stamp from 55 cents to 58 cents. All customers will see this increase in their mailing rate.


8/4/21: On 8/2/21 PayPal increased their fees from the old 30 cents + 2.9% of the total Payment to now 49 cents + 3.49% of the total Payment. We have now added these extra fees to our PayPal Payment page and the Email Billing costs. The new rates of Email Billing are now 62 cents to cover these additional costs.


6/30/21: Paper Billers and Mailers, remember you can avoid PayPal costs by mailing us a business or personal check made out to BillingPros. If you know how many customers you're mailing each month just send us a check, if your not sure how many customers you will be mailing just over pay slightly. Remember any extra money in your account from over paying is carried over to your balance viewable in your billing and mailing completion email and can be used any time.


4/24/21: Changing Billing and Mailing Completion Email. The original email coding was rather bulky and heavy especially when customers have flyers, and many other payments and charges. We have went through the original email and table with its payment history and charges, streamlining the coding to 1/3 of its original size making it load faster when previewing and should have a much cleaner look in all devices.


4/15/21: new feature We just added a NEW PDF Function to the Billing Pros System. Just set the customers you want PDF's for in the Billing Type and click the "Send PDF" image. Now you can easily Print and Mail your own Customers or Email bill your Customers with the PDF as an attachment. This function allows business owners to receive their Statements or Invoices in an easy printable or emailable PDF format, you have both options. We convert your Statements, Invoice to PDF then email them to you however you want them.
