As with almost every online product you can find a complete and unbiased review. These will look at the pros and cons of the product as well as those given by actual customers that have used the product. One such product is internet postage and here is a summary of what there is to say.
Buying online has many pros. First of which is no longer having to get in your car and drive to the post office every time you need to mail something that does not require just a stamp. By using all you need to do is download the software and hook up a digital scale and you are ready to go. You simply place whatever you want to mail, including packages on the scale and it will automatically calculate the cost necessary.
Convenience is another major factor found to rate high. You no longer have to go during business hours you can do it at your convenience. Once you have applied your postage you can hand your mail directly to your carrier, there is no need to call and schedule a pick up. Also when you are running low all you need to do is add funds to your account which can be done quickly online.
Stamps.com lets you do it yourself 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.. It’s the easiest, most convenient way to manage your mailing needs. All it takes is a PC and a scale to print USPS-approved postage for envelopes, packages, and even Priority Mail right from home or office. You may never have to go out unnecessarily again.
Those in a business ranked the service very highly because they help you track your expenses and keep detailed records of your usage. You can also very easily set up your account so that if your business has separate locations you can use the same account for each of them. They offer you service without having to sign up for a long term contract.
You will also save money because you will no longer have both a monthly service charge and a meter rental charge. You will also no longer have to pay for updates for the meters your rent which can cost nearly $250 each time the rates change. They update their program which automatically updates your account.
Really the only negative that was found was from a company that occasionally needed to ship packages weighing more than 5lbs. The digital scales that come with the service weighs up to 5 lbs. However if you know the weight of the package you can call the company and they will tell you how to manually print your postage.
The Internet postage review found that most people would recommend the service to their friends or fellow business owners, here is a quote, “Purchasing my postage online has allowed me to save untold money because the time that I was spending going to and from the post office and then standing in line is now spent in the office where I can actually make money.”
