A publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange, Stamps.com is an enormous conglomerate with scores of subsidiaries. In a nutshell, it is a monthly subscription service that allows you to print USPS postage from home. Stamps.com also has a large variety of marketplace integrations, allowing users to import orders from any store they are selling from. Examples of such integrations include 3dcart, eBay, Magento, Volusion and more.

Overview:

While they are one of the largest USPS postage providers in the world, Stamps.com isn’t the best solution for your E-commerce business. They frequently advertise that you’ll get the “lowest USPS rates” if you sign up with them.  However, their USPS discounts only reach up to 40% off of domestic shipments. There are other shipping software solutions out there that will give you more than double this discount, so we suggest doing your homework.

Feature Overview:

  • Discounted USPS rates, up to 40% off
  • Easily purchase stamps for your mail and shipping labels for your parcels
  • Automatically import your orders from nearly every marketplace
    • Use one simple dashboard to manage and ship all your orders from all your stores
  • Browse more features

Highlights:

  • Free 4-week trial version
  • Get $5 in postage and a free USB-powered shipping scale when you sign up
  • All the top direct thermal label printer brands are compatible
  • Free telephone support from live customer service representations

    Not really getting that much more of a discount than just buying labels off Shopify…

    It’s a pretty cheap service on a month to month basis, and you’ll save some money on your shipping labels. I tried out a few other solutions recently and found that I saved more money with pretty much every single one, though.

    I make handcrafted jewelry in my spare time and figured I’d start selling some on eBay. I haven’t shipped out a lot of orders (YET!!!) but I picked Stamps to save some money on shipping labels. It’s pretty affordable and I saved a little bit of money so far, but I don’t know if it justifies paying $16 a month if I’m not taking in a lot of orders. That will more than likely change once my order volume picks up.

    Not gonna lie. Set up an eCommerce store on Volusion and chose stamps.com as my shipping integration since that’s the only one I’d ever heard of. It was cool and easy to import all my orders, and I saved some money on labels. But there’s other options out there that give you better discounts and do the exact same thing (and more)
