If it cannot pay USPS postage, what CAN it do?

It can still sell postage. But it is no longer exclusive. It will work with other shippers.

Amazon is in there some farking way.

This is not an article so much as a snippet of a part of a press release that is less informative than the press release probably.

So today I was at a FedEx Office location dropping off some paperwork destined for a title company, and while I was in line, someone called the clerk and spent close to 5 minutes asking where the closest UPS store was.

The poor clerk was rolling his eyes and trying to ditch the caller without pissing them off.

Finally, the call ended and I stepped up to the counter and asked him where the closest post office was, and he cracked up laughing.

So it's true what they say.

Philately will get you nowhere.

I never could figure out why anyone would use Stamps.com.   If you aren't shipping much, it doesn't make sense at all.  If you are shipping a lot, it may make sense as long as your items don't need to be insured.  I still think using Amazon or something else to ship would be better.

My first thought too.  What's their business model if they cut out the only place that deals with what they're named after?  Maybe they're just threatening to negotiate a better price?

I looked at it for a side job where I mail 200 letters/month. That's right on the cusp of  making it worthwhile for me.

With the 10% postage discount and $17/month fee, it costs $7 more, but I could print postage on the envelopes and not manually apply 200 stamps.

Cool thanks!    My friends that have little Etsy or Ebay businesses never break 100 items per month.
