Stamps.com, a provider of postage online and shipping software solutions to approximately 400,000 customers, is hoping to convince sellers there’s an easier way.
The company said Tuesday it will continue to enable unlimited batch shipping from eBay Stores without any service fees to new customers who sign up before October 1, 2010. Batch shipping with Stamps.com allows eBay sellers to print multiple shipping labels at one time and via all classes of USPS mail.
“Stamps.com enables thousands of eBay sellers to ship their orders quickly, reliably and affordably,” said Stamps.com president and CEO Ken McBride. “The response to our original eBay promotion was very positive, and we are pleased to provide even more eBay sellers the chance to benefit from our world-class batch shipping solution.”
Stamps.com allows eBay Store users to retrieve order data and automatically post order status details such as tracking numbers and cost data back to their eBay Store.
Integration with the free Stamps.com USB scale further decreases the need for manual data entry by automatically importing package weight and calculating the correct postage. Users also receive discounts on Priority and Express Mail, cost codes to keep track of expenses, and Hidden Postage which prints shipping labels without displaying the actual postage cost.
Stamps.com says its goal in offering a free eBay batch shipping solution is to introduce eBay users to its product and encourage them to explore all of the additional features which are available for a small additional monthly fee. Other features available to standard customers include the ability to print postage directly on envelopes or on NetStamps for convenient mailing solutions.
