    Hey there, great article thank you just wanted to add that stamps.com does indeed now offer UPS services. I am still comparing the costs using stamps.com vs going to UPS.com directly. I am assuming of course that stamps.com will be offering a lower price.

      Thanks for such an informative article!! These hacks could be really useful in the ecommerce industry. Looking forward to see some more articles like these and would love to share it further.

        You should really update this to include references to USPS zone shipping and the regional rate boxes which are cheaper than flat rate, and can only be ordered online from their website but they are completely. Regional A boxes are maximum 15 lb and regional B boxes are maximum 20, and the cost tends to fall below what you would pay for a flat rate medium or large box which are the same size but have a ship weight limit of 70lbs

          Thanks Joe! You make a good point. We will be updating soon!

            These are some pretty good points and I like that the article recommends spending a bit more on packaging materials if you need it. After all, you will want to make sure that your products get into customer’s hands safely. If they don’t then your customers could get angry and that will cost you more than what you saved on shipping materials in the long run.
