Getting Started:

  1. Simply download and install the software
  2. Set up your user name and password and enter your physical address and billing information

The postage wizard has an easy walk-through (below) that will get you all the way through the process.

Using Your Digital Scale

When you receive your digital scale, simply plug it into any working USB port on your computer. The scale that comes free (you do pay S&H) with your subscription weighs items up to 5 lbs. It integrates directly to give the accurate weight of your parcel to Stamps.com® so it can calculate the exact postage costs. Should you need to ship heavier items, a 25lb scale is also available as an upgrade for purchase.

Buying More Postage

Updating your balance is easy and you can do it any time. You can always tell how much postage is in your account by looking at the bottom left corner.

  1. Click Buy Postage
  2. Enter the dollar amount you want to add
  3. Confirm that amount
