How to Send Parcels Right from Your Home or Office

How to Send Parcels Right from Your Home or OfficeSometimes life is so hectic that we don’t have time to stand in line at a coffee shop, deli, bank or post office. Luckily, with the Internet you can save yourself a trip to some places. And we don’t mean ordering pizza or Chinese. Have you known that you can send parcels right from your home or office?

There are several ways to send mail via the United States Postal Service (USPS). You can take a parcel to a post office to have it shipped, drop it into a blue collection box, leave it in your home mailbox, or schedule a free pickup. But whichever way you choose, you should keep in mind that your parcel needs a shipping label. That’s why many people opt for a trip to a post office, even if this means spending time and extra money. They just don’t know how to create a shipping label.

A shipping label is a sticker that contains information about the sender’s address, the recipient’s address, postal service, etc. It is also the confirmation that you’ve paid the postage. When you ship overseas, the shipping label also contains a customs form. Usually an employee at the retail counter of a post office generates and attaches the label, and some people simply don’t know that they can do it themselves.

USPS allows its customers to pay for postage online, print shipping labels and ship parcels from their home or office. To create a shipping label, you can use either the official USPS service or a third-party service, such as Third-party online services sometimes have their perks compared to the USPS service. For example, PostageMaker allows to ship domestic and international parcel for less by offering corporate discounts. Its rates are 5–18% lower (depending on the type of service) than that of USPS.

To print shipping labels with PostageMaker, you need to sign up for the service and add funds to your account via PayPal or one of the other payment methods we offer.

All you need to do is fill out a form with sender information, recipient information and customs information. You also need to choose a postal service (alongside USPS, we ship with FedEx) and rate.

That’s all! Now you can print the label or save it as PDF to print it later. The postage will be automatically debited from your account in the system. To ship the parcel, attach the label to the box and choose one of the options described above. Note that you can drop your parcel into a collection box only if it weighs less than 13 ounces. If it is heavier, you can leave it in your home mailbox (as long as it fits there) or schedule a pickup at
