Don’t Wait at the Post Office When You Can Do It At Home

Plus you save money.

Investing in an inexpensive scale will save you both time and money. With a postal scale handy at home, you can create shipping labels at home by purchasing postage online. If you have a small store, I suggest paypal for postage purchases for no additional monthly fee. If you have more packages to send out you may want to try a monthly service provider like Stamps.com.

With these online post age purchases, you can save on delivery confirmation (costs around 19 cents instead of 75 cents), you can print out a scan form, and you can even save on the base rate.

For example, if you send via priority or express mail, paypal, click n’ ship, and stamps.com will provide a discounted rate with free delivery confirmation.

If you send by first class mail, stamps.com provides a discounted rate and a reduced delivery confirmation rate.

I happened to stumble on a couple of used food scales (weight watchers) which are pretty useful as a postal scale stand in. I am providing them at $5 per scale and sending it priority mail.

Feel free to ask me any questions about paypal, stamps.com, or my food scales. 🙂
