Printing Postage from Home

One of the nicest features of selling on eBay is the ability to print prepaid postage labels from home. This same feature is available for all of your shipping needs and can save you a considerable amount of time.

There are a variety of methods to print your own postage at home. The United States Postal Service allows customers to print postage right from their website. Countless third-party vendors offer products and services to print postage from home as well. These options tend to be more expensive than just the postage itself, but allow photos to be added to customized stamps, packages to be weighed and postage calculated automatically, or professional-looking postage labels to be made.

Whichever method you choose, printing your own postage saves you from having to go to the post office. Not only can you print postage from anywhere at any time, but there’s also no lines to wait in when you print from home. So you save yourself the trip to the post office and the time you would have spent waiting in line. You also get to customize your purchase with just those options you want.

Once your package has the appropriate postage on it, you can drop it off at the post office or at a USPS Mailbox location. Since those options both require you to leave your home, the preferred method is to just hand the package to your mail carrier during his or her daily delivery. You can also schedule a pickup through the USPS website. Doing so will ensure that your mail carrier comes to your door after delivering your mail.

Just as online banking has all but eliminated the need to bank in person, printing postage online means that you never have to go to the post office again. Saving yourself time and energy are great reasons to consider printing postage from home.

Have you tried printing your own postage?

    Yes, I have printed my own postage for packages sent from an Ebay
    sale. I love it! However, I wonder what would happen if the weight
    is miscalculated to the underside. Does the recipient have to make
    up the difference or is the package/letter sent back to the sender?
    So far I have not had a problem as far as I know.
