    I downloaded this nw shipping assistant, and it is really cool. You can print shipping labels, then just take them to the PO and pay for it. You need a scale to weigh packages, you can use you own, you dont need a PO one, as long as its correct. By usign this feature you get Delivery Conformation added for free.

    Click n ship is not new. You can weigh your packages and pay for them online and have your mailman come pick the packages up from your house. You don't have to go to the PO.

    This is simmilar to click and ship, but a little different. You dont have to pay for postage until you go to the PO, i dont have an account i could do that. YOu can make labels, save them, print them later, and it keeps track of all your shipments witht the tracking codes.

    Yes, it is the alternative for those without a creditcard set up for payment.

    It's good to know all the alternatives.

    FYI ~~ If you pay for your postage online, you'll get a discount on the shipping cost, as well, through USPS clicknship.

    It's not difficult to setup an account and use can use a credit or debit card.

    I've been using this since it's inception and it is awesome to never leave home and stand in our long PO lines. I hand packages right to my mailman or schedule large pick-ups at my own convenience.
    it really is pricelss! No gas....no lines....costs less! Free priority boxes, tape and labels delivered right to my front door make for even better savings. [​IMG]
