A bit of inconsistency?

I was paying a few bill this evening and noticed several of them had a nice little blurb, "save a stamp, pay online."  I guess that makes sense, but if the firm recommending that I pay on line also uses the USPS to deliver their merchandise to me, then it makes no sense at all.  The USPS has been hit by the Internet. As more stuff shifts to on-line, less goes through the mail.  If your business depends upon the mail then, even if you'd get your money a day or two earlier, ultimately you're shooting yourself in the foot as the USPS goes bankrupt.  Weird.
