Email This Story to a Friend

Amazon is running a beta test of an online postage printing service for Marketplace sellers, according to Steve Weber's Selling Books blog. The service uses Stamps.com, and according to Mr. Weber, sellers will not have to pay Stamps.com's monthly subscription fee of $15.99; however, there is a fee of 7 cents per postage label.

Amazon.com sent a letter to its Marketplace sellers last week with a link to more information on automatically paying for postage using the Marketplace Payments account.
