Save Money Preparing Shipping Labels Right in Your Home or Office

How to Save on Shipping LabelsModern postal services allow to send letters and parcels to almost any corner of the world relatively easily and cheaply. While the volume of paper mail has been declining for quite some time due to the increasing popularity of electronic correspondence, we still rely on postal services to send parcels because teleportation hasn’t been invented yet and isn’t likely to be invented in the foreseeable future.

Today, parcel delivery services are provided by national postal services (such as USPS in the United States, Royal Mail in the UK, Deutsche Post in Germany etc.) and private companies such as FedEx or UPS. To send a parcel, you have to bring it to the post office, where it is weighed and labeled. After that, all that’s left to do is pay the shipping cost and wait until the parcel is delivered.

That’s great in theory, but what if you don’t have time to go to the post office? Luckily, there’s a way out. Many postal services, both national and private ones, allow to create and print shipping labels. For example, with USPS online services, you can pay for postage and print your shipping label at home or office, and then schedule a free package pickup, saving a trip to the post office. All you need is a computer with Internet access, a printer, and a debit or a credit card to pay for shipping.

USPS is cheaper than private postal services, but what if we tell you that you can save even more money by creating USPS shipping labels at home or office via PostageMaker. We offer an easy and convenient may to generate and print labels for domestic and international shipments at lower rates than USPS retail rates.

How is that even possible, you may ask? Shouldn’t we charge an additional fee for our services? You see, we don’t have to because we are an official partner of the United States Postal Service, which enables us to provide special discounts to our customers. Our domestic shipping rates are 5–12% lower than the official USPS shipping rates, depending on the parcel weight and zone. As far as international shipping is concerned, our rates are 15–18% lower than that of USPS, depending on the type of delivery.

PostageMaker also allows to add funds to your account and use them to pay for shipping anytime and anywhere, which is convenient if you don’t have your card at hand. Our service makes it possible to save your time and money at the same time. And you know what they say, time is money, so with PostageMaker, you’re saving twice!
