As any small or mid-size business owner knows, keeping a watchful eye on expenses is key to the health of a business.  So what can small businesses do to ensure that they are doing the right things for the bottom line?  Saving time and money is key (time is money as everyone knows!).  Stamps.com's PC Postage gives small and medium business (SMB) owners their very own post office that is open 24/7.  Stamps.com's software-based service allows users to calculate and print official U.S. postage right from their PCs with no additional hardware required.  It is the fastest, smartest and most reliable way to ship with the USPS for companies of all sizes.

Stamps.com's PC Postage is available with ecommerce platform integrations.  Our latest version has advanced features that enable managers of online webstores to automatically import, manage and fulfill orders via the Stamps.com interface.  Stamps.com also recently launched a new plug-in for the QuickBooks program – http://www.stamps.com/plug-in/quickbooks/. With the Stamps.com QuickBooks Plug-In, customers can now buy and print USPS postage without ever leaving the QuickBooks application.  There is no need to cut and past or manually type any data.  All of your existing delivery address data will be automatically imported from QuickBooks into the Stamps.com postage window.
