I use Stamps.com a lot for my eBay and online selling business. I think a lot of people don't realize this great service is out there, and I see people in line at the post office doing simple things like mailing a domestic package and buying postage for it. I always put my domestic packages outside my door with postage already on them. (I do go to the post office for international mailings).
I just got this press release from Stamps.com that their batch shipping for eBay Stores sellers will continue to be free. Check out the details:
LOS ANGELES � April 13, 2010
