Stamps.com Adds Support for Priority Mail Regional Rate, Military Addresses
By Ina Steiner
Stamps.com launched PC Postage Version 8.9, which includes new features to help ecommerce sellers and high-volume shippers save money on postage costs. Stamps.com provides USPS postage online and shipping software to approximately 400,000 customers, and its latest version adds support for Priority Mail Regional Rate boxes and military addresses.
Stamps.com customers can now print shipping labels for Priority Mail Regional Rate Box A and Box B. Priority Mail Regional Rate Boxes can save online merchants money when shipping short distances. In comparison to the Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Box, Regional Rate Box A can offer savings up to $5 per package.
The new version also supports APO/FPO Customs Forms, giving customers the ability to electronically complete and print Customs forms when printing postage for all applicable military addresses (APO/FPO) and U.S. Territories. Stamps.com automatically imports the delivery address into the Customs form.
PC Postage Version 8.9 also allows users to print postage on Avery 5160 Address Labels, the most popular mailing label in the office category and a common choice for consumers who print mailing addresses using personal computers. Stamps.com customers can now print USPS-approved postage for any denomination and mail class on the Avery 5160 label.
Stamps.com said it experienced a 111% growth in its total high volume shipping postage printed for the recently announced fiscal second quarter. Version 8.9 is available at no charge on the Stamps.com website.
