I have found that shipping is not my strong suit when it comes to managing the shop. I never know how much to price for shipping and handling, I fluctuate when it comes to the packaging materials I use, and deciding what day to go to the post office is tough with my graveyard-twelve-hours-a-day-seven-days-a-week shifts.
I saw Endicia advertised a couple of times through Google Ads and read someone's high regard of it in a Facebook thread. No one lies on Facebook right? Right.
Well, I decided to make the investment and spring for the equipment one day. I found myself very happy with them. By simply weighing my packages ahead of time, the Dymo Stamps software could tell me how much postage I owed. I then print them out of the LabelWriter 450. Forty seconds later, I could walk to my mailbox and drop them off. Then run to bed like a vampire, avoiding sunlight. ;)
I have used these for about a month, and so far I have not had problems with them. Also, it is my understanding that Endicia offers a free trial for 30 days. I say you should go try it.
Oh, and if you decide to try, the "Dymo Stamps" software that comes with the printer is free and very pretty much all you need. Any paid membership software they have has seemed to be a little too extravagant and unnecessary for a one-woman small business like mine.
What shipping methods do you use? Do you have a method you would recommend against?
