Product Walkthrough Video
Live Shipping Rate
Based on the product weight, box dimensions, shipping destination etc., this plugin fetches USPS postage rates from your Stamps.com account for both domestic and international shipping services. You can choose to return list rates or account / negotiated rates. There is also an option to set conversion value in case the shop uses a different currency.
Print Shipping Label
Print shipping labels within WooCommerce. After logging in to the WordPress admin area, you can create a shipment by clicking on the ‘create shipment’ button on the right side of the order details page. Shipment details would automatically be sent to Stamps.com online account and then the shipping label (GIF / JPG / PDF) would get generated which you can print. Postage is automatically paid on these labels using your Stamps.com account. There is an option to change the shipping service and box/parcel dimensions (if enabled in the plugin settings) manually before generating the label. This plugin integrates with Stamps.com APIs to print domestic or international shipping labels with a tracking barcode. You can also create shipments in bulk in the WooCommerce Orders Page.
The tracking number returned from Stamps.com while generating the label would be added to order notes and will be sent as part of the order completion email. This enables Shipment Tracking for customers and shop owners.
Parcel Packing Options
Based on the weights and dimensions of the products in the cart, the rate will be calculated and applied to the final price of the order. Once the order is placed, the items will then be automatically packed into the configured boxes. You can choose from the following Packing options:
- Individual Item Packing
- Pack Into Custom Boxes with Weights and Dimensions
- Weight-Based (You can pack heavier items first, lighter items first, or pack purely divided by weight)
Flat Rate Boxes

Will the plugin work if my shop location is out of the United States?

Yes, for maintaining the stamps account you have to pay a monthly fee. But their postage charges are lower compared to USPS retail rates.
Can we set the USPS retail rates in Stamps.com plugin?
Unfortunately, this feature is not available in Stamps plugin since the API only returns the discounted rates. But you can use the Price adjustment field in the plugin settings to increase the shipping cost by a fixed value or percentage.

How to hide first class option when the order is over 16oz?
The API will automatically hide the first class option when order total weight is over 16oz.

If you select ‘Individual item packing’ and a few of the products’ weight qualify for first class, the First class option will still show up as an option.
Can I bulk print labels?
You can bulk generate shipment which will generate the labels. But to print them, you need to open the individual order labels and print.
