USPS print your own postage at home ?


Going to the post office with 30 - 50 boxes every other day, and waiting a full 45 minutes to an hour, just to have them processed has gotten to me, and I want to ask if any of you print your own labels / postage at home. Please walk me through this process.

Also - do you schedulr pickups at your home? If so, how much advance notice is needed for this?

Hope somebody here can help. Thanks!

I print my labels at home. All you need is a digital food scale or postal scale, go to paypal and use the multi order tool option. If you are sending a flat rate or priority mail you can schedule a p/u at your home. They should p/u the next day of mail delivery.

I did thank you through PM right? If not, a very big THANK YOU !

To be honest, it's just one thing too much for me right now - but the info is very helpful for when I get set up for it.

I use stamps.com they will send you a free scale and has shipping discounts. however it does cost like 15 -20 a month I think but if you have a continuous stream of packages going out it is worth it. you can schedule your pickups through it too, hook it up to an ebay account and it will transfer all the shipping info over to stamps.com through the batch order option, or other address books. you can also go straight through Usps.com for shipping and scheduling. I have my pick ups scheduled for the next 3 month's through USPS.com

Use the PayPal multi-order shipping option, it is MUCH cheaper than stamps.com. I ship all my stuff using PayPal...they offer a cheaper rate if you can keep it under 13 oz. You can schedule pick up through PayPal, I do believe, and hook it to ebay and all that too. My post man thinks I am running a drug cartel, I think with all the packages coming in and going out. LMAO!!!!

Rebbul Who do you think your fooling?With the multi order tool you don't need to buy anything special to print out the shipping labels.
