What with printing labels, calculating postage rates, and managing addresses, shipping can be time-consuming and expensive. These online services can remove some of the hassle and expense from the process.

STAMPS.COM

This online service lets customers import addresses from an online store, address book, or spreadsheet, and input package weights. Stamps.com's software checks the information for inaccuracies, then calculates USPS postage rates and creates labels. Customers can track the status of deliveries and export shipping logs into spreadsheets. Businesses that use the online service get a 5 percent discount on Express Mail packages and 10 percent on Priority Mail, along with free delivery confirmations.
COST: $15.99 a month (scale included)

TRUESHIP

Like Stamps.com, TrueShip calculates postage rates and prints labels, but the service works with FedEx and UPS as well as the U.S. Postal Service. TrueShip lets users customize shipping logs and review up-to-date shipping prices and delivery estimates before sending packages. Businesses that send packages via the USPS also receive an online discount and free delivery confirmations.
COST: $19.95 a month
