Case 2

First Class Mail in the list of shipping options available on the admin dashboard but doesn’t display on the front-end (Checkout page).

Solution

If the weight in the Cart is more than 13 ounce, the First Class Mail will not display on the checkout page. First Class Mail can be used to ship items weighing up to 13 ounces. 

Availability of a service depends on the following metrics:

  1. Sender address.
  2. Recipient address.
  3. Product dimensions and weight.

In addition to that, you may check on the USPS calculator as whether the First Class Mail is returned for your metrics or not.
