Send Parcels Cheaper using Postagemaker.comEmail, social networks and instant messengers have made it much easier to exchange messages between people, so we have been relying on letter mail service less over the past years. However, we aren’t likely to stop relying on parcel post anytime soon, unless somebody unexpectedly invents a working teleport. Sending a parcel can be rather expensive, especially if you need to send items overseas. But you can send parcels cheaper using

Parcel post emerged much later than letter post, when the development of railway network made it possible to deliver parcels in bulk, to a regular schedule and at reasonable prices. The first parcel service was created in Germany in the second half of the 19th century. The international parcel service which allowed to send packages and parcels from one country to another at uniform postal rates was established by the UPU (Universal Postal Union) in 1881.

Today, parcel delivery service is provided by national postal agencies, Express Mail Service (EMS), and private shipping companies, such as UPS, FedEx, DHL, TNT Express, and others. International parcel shipping rates depend on many factors, including the weight and size of the parcel, the distance to delivery destination, the mode of transport, the base rates of the carrier, etc. National postal agencies usually offer lower rates than private shipping companies, but the delivery might take a bit longer.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) started international parcel services in 1887. Today, the USPS offers several international parcel delivery services, including Global Express Guaranteed, Priority Mail Express International, Priority Mail International, and First-Class Package International Service. USPS shipping rates depend on the country of destination (all countries are divided into several price groups), the weight of the parcel, and the type of international mail service.

With PostageMaker, you can send parcels via the USPS cheaper than the official rates offered directly by the United States Postal Service. How is this possible? The matter is that we are an official partner of the USPS, and this status has its perks, both for us and our customers. This partnership enables us to offer international shipping rates that are up to 18% lower than that of the USPS, but your package is still delivered by the USPS, just for a lower price.

What exactly do we have to offer to our clients? PostageMaker is a shipping label generation system that allows people to generate USPS shipping labels online and send parcels cheaper. All you need to do is create an account, add funds, and fill out an online form to generate a shipping label. While filling out the form, you will be able to select the international mail service that suits you the most.

Once the label is generated, you can print it out right away or save it as PDF and print later. All that’s left to do is attach the label to your parcel and hand it to a post office operator or a postman. You can also schedule a free package pickup with the USPS and save a trip to the post office.
