At first I was opposed to paying a monthly fee for a postage service so I bought a postage meter from another company to use for my small business. What I saved in a monthly fee was not worth the frequent battles to get my billing corrected, so I switched to Stamps.com. Yes, there is a charge for the stamp labels to print on, but this is offset by the reduced cost of first class postage versus stamps purchased at the PO. I love being able to print postage for packages and just walk into the post office and drop my packages in the box without waiting in the long lines at the post office! For personal use, I love being able to buy the special stamps labels for birthdays and other occasions. There are two reasons I gave four stars instead of five. One is that all the Christmas stamp labels are secular and there isn't even one religious one. Two is that software upgrades are difficult to accomplish because it keeps seeing the old software as open and will not allow the upgrade to be installed.

I'm in a busy postal district and not having the wait in line is a life and time saver. Have used to years.

I don't know what I ever did before I had Stamps.com. It is so convenient for me, saves me money AND time, LOTS of time. I appreciate being able to get all my postage for all my packages and letters in one place and not having to waste time at the Post Office. I have not had the need to contact customer service so I can't rate that part of the business. I appreciate the quick shipping when I need supplies as well. I will continue to use Stamps.com for my business AND personal postage needs.

We used to use Dazzle and when we heard that Stamps.com acquired Dazzle we thought that life would be great, but none of Dazzle's great features have migrated to Stamps.com. Dazzle would let you put in just the zip and get city & state auto loaded. Dazzle let us PRINT a return label on the spot to be included with the package instead of having to email to customer and hope they print before it expires. Importing our orders from website, Amazon & Ebay continues to deteriorate. It duplicates data sources and if your computer restarts you get stuff that you shipped 2 or 3 weeks ago.

When I first got into Stamps.com, I got it for what was then my business, HartBeat Vending, LLC. It was great then for printing out stamps for mailings. Now I still use it for my personal mail, e.g., when I mail my rent checks to my landlord, I use it to print out the envelope with the address and postage on it. It works out great, as I don't need to go to the Post Office to get stamps, etc. I can just print them out on my computer, or print an indicia directly onto the envelope. I love this program.
Review by KirilND1 year ago
As with the title it is very convenient, but when a price change is placed it doesn't consider that those who do not use the remaining stamps on a sheet are going to waste or require additional small (penny) stamps. There are none to be provided on the system. Results the old printed stamps are wasted or are used by paying almost double postage.
Recommend that the old printed ones be authorized until consumed. The current policy compromises the convenience because we have to go to the post office to pay the difference ie. 3 cents

One of the reasons I chose Stamps.com over other similar services was the ability to print custom stamps. There are so many (ridiculous) restrictions that I have not been able to use either my logo or a picture of my business. (It is a church!). I do not believe that a picture of my church is offensive to anyone. Stop your PC nonsense stamps.com

I like Stamps a lot. I am not a business, but use Stamps for letters, gift packages, and shipping golf clubs. I love the ability to weigh packages and get the right postage, I love the discount on 1st class postage.
It is cool to just have packages picked up, or to just drop stuff off at the P.O. or our local mail store without waiting in line.

I love Stamps.com and the way it frees me from ever talking to a postal clerk. I wish they processed REFUNDS faster because that can take weeks.
Review by Tembobarafu Udris2 years ago
For reasons other than Stamps.com, I have closed my sole proprietor home office business. On a very personal survival level, I may have to seriously consider terminating my Stamps.com relationship. The postage rate increases have kept me from many personal mailings - Christmas cards, Birthday greetings to members of my HUGE family, same with Anniversary greetings and special events items. In recent weeks, I needed to send a package Certified, Return Receipt, a process I know how to do manually. Stamps.com wanted me to do it with their forms, which I did not have on hand, available to use. I could not wait through the order and delivery time to get my package mailed so I had to use another, possibly less secure, method to get the package shipped. I'm not yet sure it did get where it needed to go! That said, in past years, for my business, Stamps.com has been a time and money saver for me so if I need to terminate now, it is with regret.

Even if you don't use a lot of postage and are running a small business, the small monthly fee is worth it simply to save the time and inconvenience of having to travel to the post office, wait in line, etc.

I see you giving people scales, etc to joint. I have been with you a long time and have never been offered a scale or anything for that matter.
Review by Nerrine2 years ago
I dont feel I should have to pay a monthly fee for using stamps.com. A flat rate of 15.00 a year or something of that nature. I pay for templates and use my ink to print them. Why do I have to pay so much to use software.
Review by Kagura2 years ago
They keep you well informed and have no problem downloading the stamps to the envelops. By having the stamps in your computer they are ready when you need them.
Review by Analytics2 years ago
I also would like to know the latest prices of stamps for regular mail. I would also like to see simpler instructions on how to print shipping labels. After having to reprint some I have found out how to print labels. We need instructions on how to fill out shipping labels that are sent out of US.
Review by Elosia2 years ago
I like it a lot and it is very user friendly (unlike face book). I do think the monthly fees are a bit high for a nonbusiness user like I am. Other than that it would be perfect.
Review by Phebe Pimminger2 years ago
This is a wonderful way to buy stamps online.
I would have given them a 5 except they promised $20.00 dollars postage if I mailed a postcard back to them using a stamp from my account. I did, but the free stamps never showed up. Oh, well.

I don't have to go to the post office for stamps or configure multiple stamps for the correct amount of postage.

I love it that I don't have to run to the post office every time I need to buy stamps. It is great that I don't have to go to the post office and I can print postage when I need it.

Postage meter companies were making us pay for new chips for our meter every time the rates changed. Stamps.com can push them out over the web for free! For us it is cheaper to pay the monthly fee than to pay all the costs associated with a regular meter.
Review by Sirkina2 years ago
The $10 maximum purchase limits for us "basic" users doesn't make much sense. Stamps.com must process ten separate sales for us to get $100 worth of postage when we would normally purchase $50-$100 at a time. This costs Stamps.com much, much more in overhead costs. It's only a minor inconvenience to us. I wonder who's brilliant idea THAT was! We like the fact that we always have exactly the right amount of postage for any size envelope or package and a lower cost to send to a residential address than other shippers.
Review by Yasuri Fatehnia2 years ago
We ship a lot - it works great for within the US but for international shipping I wish there would be a way to save all the custom information as we ship the same products and I have to re-enter the same information again and again and again - eg save description, price, weight and HS code.
Review by Campden2 years ago
I've used two different postage meters over the last 30+ years I've been in business. I paid a lot more & got a lot less. I had to pay a fortune for ink & service. Letters got jammed more times than I cared to count. I love this method of posting my mail. Of course, I don't send out the volume I used to, but does anyone? I love the reduced rate on postage & that I can do a multiple of the same rate. It works great for me.
