With an online postage service like Stamps.com, you can easily print all USPS shipping labels from the comfort of your home. Stamps.com provides access to all USPS mail classes including First Class Package Service, Parcel Select and Priority Mail. You'll also get access to postage discounts that are not available at the Post Office.
Getting started is easy. All you need to start printing USPS postage and shipping packages from home is a Stamps.com account, your computer, and a printer. It only takes a few steps to get started.
Creating a Stamps.com online postage account only takes a few minutes. To get started, you just have to input your contact info and create a username. You'll also need to include a credit card to pay the monthly $17.99 subscription charge and for any USPS postage purchases. Once your Stamps.com com account is open, you can start printing official USPS postage for your packages.
Special Offer – Free 5 lb. Scale: Stamps.com provides a free* 5 lb. digital scale to all new customers (*shipping and handling fee required). The scale is a $50 retail value and is yours to keep with no additional obligation, regardless if you cancel the service or not.
After your Stamps.com account has been created, you can access your account by logging-in to the website. Once you are logged in, you'll be directed to the “Print” screen where you can input the package details.
Input the delivery address for your package. Stamps.com verifies all delivery addresses against the USPS database, to help ensure your packages reach their intended destination. You can also include the package recipient’s email so they can receive tracking status emails so they know when to expect their package will be delivered.
Before your label can be printed, you'll need to calculate your package's weight. Just place your package (up to 5 pounds) on the free digital scale you received when signing up. The scale connects to your Stamps.com account via USB and will automatically import the weight of the parcel.
Once your package has been weighed, Stamps.com will automatically calculate the postage rate and will show different shipping options based on estimated delivery time. Select the shipping service to meet your delivery needs.
After your mail class has been selected, you are ready to print your label.
