STAMPS.COM ANNOUNCES NEW INTEGRATION WITH DIGITALSHIPPER SOFTWARE
LOS ANGELES – June 9, 2011 – Stamps.com® (Nasdaq:STMP), the leading provider of USPS® postage online and shipping software to approximately 400,000 customers, today announced a new integration with DigitalShipper™, a multi-carrier shipping software that connects enterprise branches, warehouses and distribution centers to a single shipping architecture.
DigitalShipper’s multi-carrier platform allows customers to select a shipping carrier from a single all-encompassing interface. The carrier selection consists of the U.S. Postal Service® via Stamps.com, FedEx® and UPS®.

The new Stamps.com integration will allow DigitalShipper customers to easily print all USPS mail classes and access online postage discounts for Priority Mail®, Express Mail® and First-Class Mail® without ever leaving the DigitalShipper interface.
