Live Shipping Rate
Based on the product weight, box dimensions, shipping destination etc., the plugin fetches USPS postage rates for both domestic and international shipping services. You can choose to return list rates or account/negotiated rates.
Print Shipping Label (USPS eVS – With Postage)
If you are USPS e-VS customer, print shipping labels with Postage (using USPS eVS APIs) from within WooCommerce. The USPS eVS API is designed for very high-volume package mailers. e-VS, or Electronic Verification System, can be integrated directly through USPS, unlike most other USPS options which require a USPS Provider. In addition to this, you can even create eVS shipments in bulk, in the WooCommerce Orders page. If you don't have USPS eVS Account, then we recommend using ELEX Stamps.com USPS Plugin for printing USPS Labels.
eVS SCAN Form
If you are shipping dangerous products across the borders, shipped through air carriers or air freights, you should attach an eVS SCAN Form to the goods. This form is useful for Customs clearance for alcohol, toxic products, flammable products, and so on. You can create SCAN Forms using Order ID or Date of Lable generation, in the USPS SCAN Form dashboard.
The tracking number returned from USPS 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 Packaging 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 Shipping
Flat Rate Boxes cost you a fixed price as long as the parcel weighs less than 70 lbs. The boxes come in multiple sizes which makes them suitable for products of different sizes and weights. These are easily available and are economical packing materials. You can choose one or more Flat Rate Boxes, based on your requirement:
- Priority Mail Express Flat Rate Envelope
- Priority Mail Express Legal Flat Rate Envelope
- Priority Mail Express Flat Rate Box
- Priority Mail Express Padded Flat Rate Envelope
- Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope
- Priority Mail Flat Rate Medium Box
- Priority Mail Flat Rate Large Box
- Priority Mail Flat Rate Small Box
- Priority Mail Padded Flat Rate Envelope
- Priority Mail Gift Card Flat Rate Envelope
- Priority Mail Window Flat Rate Envelope
- Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Envelope
- Priority Mail Legal Flat Rate Envelope
Configure handling fees for each shipping service, in terms of amount or percentage value. A positive value results in markup, whereas negative value results in a discount.

I’ve had this plugin for around 6 months and I absolutely love it. The support is way above average…it’s stellar. Lorenzo answers all of my questions by the following morning (we are in different time zones). This USPS plugin really does work as well as it says. So so so much better than the free one in Woocommerce.
Plugin has been great so far, and Lorenzo gave me super awesome support, even when I really didn’t need it. It was simple setting issue that I had overlooked. My client needed a pretty robust shipping solution, and this plugin does everything they need. During initial testing, I couldn’t get the rates to fire. I then looked at the free plugin repository on WP, and they had already set up an FAQ regarding this issue: I just needed to enable “bug logging” and run a test order. Bam. Fixed. I highly recommend this plugin. Works great.
Great product and even better customer service. They wrote a custom code snippet for me to make this plugin work exactly as I needed.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I add an additional fee to Flat rate box shipping cost?
Yes. Under the Rates and Services tab, you can add the flat rate fee. It will add the cost to the actual flat rate boxes price.
Can I use the plugin in a Multi-vendor environment?
Right now our plugin does not support Multi-vendor environment. But we do have a plan to make it compatible in the future.
Can I offer Free shipping using the plugin?
The plugin can only calculate the shipping cost based on the package details and the destination address. However, If you want free shipping, you can add that in WooCommerce Shipping zones.

Yes, you can. Under the WooCommerce menu, you’ll get the option to print the Manifest, based on date or order IDs.

Can I print labels and pay for the postage in the postal office?
The non-postage labels for USPS have been stopped by USPS since Feb 2018. So you only have the option to print labels using the Click N’ Ship Business pro account with eVS integration.
Can I use the plugin just to offer live shipping rates without having the USPS account?
Yes, you can leave the username field blank in the plugin settings. But make sure you have weight and dimension in the products. Also, if you just want to get the live shipping rates, the process to get the WebToolsID is pretty easy once you register with USPS.
Do you have tracking for International orders?
Most USPS services don’t have international tracking since USPS function only within the USA. When the packages go international, they transfer the services to new carriers.
I am not eligible for an eVS account. Can I still use this plugin?
If you are not eligible for eVS account, you can still use this plugin for displaying real-time USPS shipping rates on cart/checkout page. For label printing, we recommend you to check our ELEX Stamps.com Shipping Plugin with USPS Postage for WooCommerce.
Is there Insurance option in this plugin?
Right now the plugin does not have the insurance option since most shipment with USPS is insured up to a certain value, but we’ll surely add this feature in the future.
