Package delivery is the future for the U.S. Postal Service, its representatives say. The same is true for a close partner of the USPS, Stamps.com. As a result, the online postage provider to more than 500,000 customers announced on Monday that it bought e-commerce software provider ShipWorks for $22 million.
Stamps.com announced its new USPS shipping integration with ProStores, an e-commerce platform that enables small businesses to sell products and services online from their own websites. ProStores is a unit of eBay. This new integration offers ProStores customers an effective new method for order fulfillment. With Stamps.com, customers can automatically import orders and print shipping labels for all USPS mail classes, domestic and international. Once a shipping label has been printed, customers will see order status details such as the USPS tracking number, ship date and mail class posted to their ProStores account.
