Postal Advocate has implemented over 10,000 PC Postage installations and is the leading expert on what solutions will best meet your needs. Whether it is a single location or thousands that need to be controlled on an enterprise dashboard, we can design and implement a plan that works for you.
PC Postage systems allow you to print packages and stamps from any computer with an internet connection and a local (or network) printer. They will print 4 x 6 shipping labels onto either regular paper (To be taped to the item), or on Avery® type labels that can be purchased at any office supply store. When printing postage stamps, you can either print directly onto your envelope or purchase blank sheets of stamps from the PC Postage providers, that can be loaded into your printer (Most common). There are custom label printers that can be ordered, but they are not required.
This is the fastest growth segment of the mailing industry for the following reasons:
Inexpensive compared to postage meters and typical costs range from $10-30 per month.
Cloud based and can be accessed from any device. This means it will work from home, while travelling and in locations without other metering technology.
Easy to deploy and use – You will receive your login credentials, a scale and starter labels. There are simple online tutorials to get you started quickly.
Visibility to all history and package tracking statuses.
Significant postage savings – As you can see from the chart below, the USPS® provides extra discounts because the package level detail is being submitted electronically. It is worth noting that some newer postage meters may come with a PC Postage subscription to get these rates
Some systems have multiple carrier options to process UPS®/FedEx®
