Paul’s Watch & Clock Repair is a family owned and operated business located in pauls-watchSacramento, California.  Besides being an apprentice watch repairman, owner Raimond Irimescu oversees all aspects of the store’s outgoing shipments.   Paul’s Watch & Clock Repair has been a customer since May 2008.  We recently asked Raimon a few questions about his mailing and shipping program:

Before using, how did you process your mailing and shipping needs?
Previously, I would go to the Post Office which usually meant delays due to long lines.  Since I ship to many different countries and use a lot of special services, I also encountered inexperienced clerks that made check out much more complicated.

For a short period,  I tried to ship using UPS.   But UPS ended up being a disaster for me.  Along with fees for practically everything, I also encountered poor service such as damaged packages and unsafe shipments (no mailboxes-drop offs by front door).  I mailed thousands of packages with the USPS and rarely received a complaint from my customers…until I used UPS.  I then received 4 complaints in the first week and so I stopped using UPS.

Why did you choose to start using
I needed a solution that could save me time and money and be able to process international shipments.  I can do that now with   There is no other place online that I know of that offers me the ability to send a package to a worldwide destination using First Class Mail or will allow me to print a simple stamp for a letter!

Has made your shipping process more efficient? 
Since I started using, I am saving lot of time that was previously wasted waiting in line at the post office.  I am also tracking packages easier and faster since I have quick access to my shipment records.   The reporting feature is a big change from before when I would have to manually search for paper receipts when I had a mailing inquiry from a customer.

Also, the software allows me to do everything in the store — insure packages for high values, send Registered Mail, use First Class Mail International, etc.   I also can print stamps without having to leave the house or store. I use at work and at home as well.

Have you been able to lower mailing costs using
Yes, since I send a lot of Priority Mail International, I am able to use the special online discounts.   Plus, since I send out a lot of packages, I qualify for the USPS Commercial Plus discount program.   For me, it definitely adds up to big money.

Do you have a favorite function in the software?
I have many different favorite functions.   Overall, I find easy to use.  I love the fact that I can insure  every package and I have shipping reports saved automatically and at my fingertips.   Plus, will help me during tax time since my shipping expenses are well organized and easy to find!
