    Hi Jeff,

    You should see an International tab on the left navigation, directly under “Stamps,” “Envelopes” and “Packages.”

    If you only see the “Batch” tab, that would mean you are on the Free eBay account which only allows you to print International postage by importing your orders directly from your eBay account.

    If you have any questions, please call Customer Support at 1-888-434-0055 (open Mon-Fri, 6am to 6pm PT).

    Hi Fdecker629,

    Yes, you can print 1 cent stamps to accompany your older $0.44 stamps. You would need to use NetStamps — if you click on the “Stamps” link in the left navigation, you can print any value you would like on a NetStamp. Choose the “I want to specify the value for each stamp” option and input the value.

    If you have any questions, please call Customer Support at 1-888-434-0055 (open Mon-Fri, 6am to 6pm PT).

    When the stamp price changes, will Stamps issue a 45 cent stamp or a 1 cent stamp to be added along with a 44 cent stamp

    I’m trying to ship international. The HELP system tells me there should be an “International” tab but there is none on my program where the help screen shows there should be. Any ideas?

    Hi PickerWife, The USPS will pick-up from any address you provide them on the carrier pick-up form provided that you are shipping a Priority Mail or Express Mail package. The package must also have pre-paid postage.

    Will USPS pick up from any address, or just the one i put on my account info? I have two houses and want to ship from both.

    Hi Newsom, You’re probably talking about the NFL Dallas Cowboys PhotoStamps. They were available at our http://www.photostamps.com site. We no longer make those unfortunately.

    Guess i am at the wrong place…I was looking for some of the Cowboy Stamps which were issued about 18 months ago or so.  Can someone help me find some?

    I would love a 4×6 label for domestic shipments!

    You said to check the blog for info on release date for MAC users and I found no information. Many of us waiting for your product.

  12. February 14th, 2011 at 15:24 | #12

    I wish they would get their act together for us Mac users. Who wouldn’t want to sell their services to more business people. The rep told me it would be December 2010. I haven’t unpacked the scale I got in October 2010. waiting waiting….

    I have been using stamps.com for many months with no problem but now when I make new presets for the batch shipping they don’t work only the one that I made from day one. Any Idea how to fix this?

    I can’t locate any information for the Mac solution. Sure would be nice for a rapidly growing users.

    Still no Mac solutions? Searched for some announcement about it in the blog, but found nothing. Hoping you’ll work out something soon, and suspect more and more people are.

    I’m running into some issues with testing the Webservice Solution (SWS).
    I tried to search the site for webservice, sws etc., but could not find any results.
    Is this the place to ask about SWS API?

    @sanford lamovsky
    This problem could be caused by an incorrect password. Try going to our “My Account” page and logging in at http://customer.stamps.com.

    If you still cannot log-in, you’ll need to do a password reset clicking on the link on the login page.

    Hope this helps!

    i reinstalled my operating system which, of course, wiped out all my files. i went to the “reinstall program” section on the stamps.com website. however, when i try to reinstall the program and sign in, i get a message saying that the computer i’m using is not the same one that was originally used when i signed up for stamps.com, and i need to give the last four digits of my drivers license #, which was not one of my chosen security questins. What’s going on, and how do i complete the reinstallation?

    I just changed to a new computer and nothing works now. I cant log on because my user name and password are not recognized, and answers to my security questions are not recognized either. I don’t want to pay again to reclaim printing privileges. I have not seen a phone number either. Any one have this experience or able to offer help?

    @Jordan D. Allen
    Unfortunately, most methods of shipping Internationally require customs forms, prohibiting a 4×6 size label. However, both Priority Flat Rate Envelopes & First Class Int’l could theoretically be printed on 4×6 labels with no problems! So we have submitted a request to our Research & Development Dept. about implementing this. Thank you for your request!

  22. January 15th, 2010 at 12:58 | #22


    How about printing international First class on 4 x 6 thermal labels for a Zebra / Eltron printer. This would be a tremendous help. I’m sure it can be done, you guys offer a sheet of 4 labels (4 x 6) why not give this a try, I’m sure many business would be happy (wouldn’t be wasting all of that paper).

    @bob glover
    Hi Bob, Unfortunately, the ability to add a customizable message is currently not available for SDC-3100 3 Part Multi-Purpose Labels. The ability to add messages in a special Memo Line/Print Message box is available for SDC-1200, SDC-4100, SDC-4600, SDC-4610, and Plain Paper options under “Packages.”

    Hi Jason, We hear you (and many other Mac customers) loud and clear — we should have a Mac solution for you in early 2010.

    I’m looking for a way to add a seasonal or customized messaage when I print postage using SDC-3100 3 Part Multi-Purpose Labels. Thanks
