USPS Shipping Labels from PopItUp.com
We're excited to include USPS Shipping labels for all of our PopItUp users. Here I'll explain how much shipping labels cost on PopItUp. We'll also give you a good reference point for how using PopItUp shipping labels is designed to give you more flexibility and save you time and money compared to using other shipping label software.
Just as the title says, you can download United States Postal Service (USPS) shipping labels right from PopItUp. You simply add POP buck to your account to pay for postage and a small per label fee, select the order, click Buy Labels for Selected, and then click Download Labels for Selected. Here's the overview of the benefits of using shipping labels from PopItUp.com:
- Commercial Plus Postage rates - you pay much less for postage that you would be driving and sending your packages from your local post office.
- No extra monthly subscription fees - Rather than paying an expensive fixed monthly subscription, you pay a small per label fee for each label that you download (which still amounts to a significant discount over going to the post office)
- Download labels right from the orders page - PopItUp uses the same address information that you or customers have already added to their PopItUp.com account, so that you don't have to download and re-upload spreadsheets or keep track of your customer's address information separately.
- Volume discounts - we’ve also built in volume discounts, so the more labels that you print, the less you pay to ship your products to your customers. Best of all, if you have a big month and then your sales slow down, you won’t be stuck with a monthly subscription. You only pay for the labels that you use.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any long term subscription fees or commitments for using the feature?
Absolutely not! You print as many or as few labels as you’d like. No long term commitments. Just print the labels that you need. You can start or stop using shipping Labels whenever you want or whenever it makes sense for your business.
Are your shipping rates the same as the Post Office?
We offer USPS Commercial Plus shipping rates on all first class and priority shipments, the most substantial discount offered by the post office. This means that you'll pay much less than driving the your local post office and paying over the counter rates.
I already use another shipping label product, will I save money by using Pay Per Label or should I keep my current subscription?
Almost all users will save money using Pay Per Label shipping labels, and all of our users will save time. With most shipping label companies, they charge a flat subscription fee that is tiered by usage. Regardless of whether you send zero shipments or hundreds, you will pay the same subscription fee. With PopItUp, you’ll only pay for the shipments that you send, so in the rare event that your sales in one month exceed what you might have paid in subscription fees that month, the next month, when you send less packages, you’ll save as much or more than you over spent the month before. We’ve designed our shipping labels feature to ensure that most shippers will save money every month and all of our users will save the time and hassle of downloading addresses, remembering another username and password, and reuploading them into another piece of software to then download and print.
How much does it cost to get started with Pay Per Label?
You can add Pop Bucks to your account in increments as small as $50.
Is it hard to use the shipping labels feature?
Not at all. It’s as easy as selecting the items that you want to ship, confirming the shipping addresses entered by your customers look correct, and clicking “Download Labels”. If you have any questions along the way, you can always reach out to our our amazing support team (consultants just like you). We’ve always got people available to help you.
Do you offer Volume Discounts?
Yes. We reward your business for its success by giving you volume discounts the more shipments that you send.
What are your Pay Per Label Fees?
We have four simple tiers that give you discounts for the number of shipments that you send each month.
|No. of Monthly Shipments||Price per label|
|1 - 50||$0.30|
|51 - 100||$0.20|
|101 - 150||$0.10|
So, for example, if you shipped 250 packages during one month you would have paid $0.30 per label for the first 50 labels, $0.20 per label for the next 50 labels, $0.10 for the next 50 labels, and $0.05 per label for the next 100 labels. The per-label fee is deducted from your POP Bucks every time you purchase a label.
Does the Per Label Fee include the Shipping Postage?
The price per label fee does not include postage. For example, the USPS postage for sending a first class package that is less than 8 ounces is $2.77. The fee for printing the label with the PopItUp will be between $0.05 and $0.30 in addition to the postage, for total fees being $2.82 – $3.07, depending on the number of packages that you’ve sent during the month.
I am a high volume shipper, is PopItUp shipping labels right for me?
Maybe. If you consistently print more than 530 labels per month, you may pay a few more dollars using PopItUp than another subscription label provider. For every label above 530 that you send each month, you’ll pay just 5 cents more than a subscription with our competitors. That means even if you’re sending 700 shipments or more, you’ll pay just over a Hamilton ($10) for the convenience of printing your labels right from PopItUp and avoiding the hassle of using another piece of software for your business. Remember, for most of our users that have up and down months, pay per label will always save you money because you won’t be stuck with the subscription fee.
Can I use Paypal as my payment type for my Pay Per Label plan?
No. At this time we only accept credit cards for shipping label subscriptions because Paypal charges higher merchant processing fees that prevent us from offering low, per label pricing to Paypal users.
Have shipping prices gone up?
The USPS periodically raises their postage prices. The latest price increase was approved late last year in 2016 and went into effect as of January 22, 2017. You can read more about the price increase by reading this announcement on the USPS website.
How do the shipping label fees work?
Shipping label fees work in the same way the IRS tax brackets work, except we charge you less as you make more money. Every month you pay the label fees for each pricing tier. As soon as you hit the next pricing tier, you pay less per label. Here’s an example of how this would work for one of our users that sends 150 flat rate envelopes in a month.
Pay Per Label from PopItUp
|No of labels||Label fees (ea)||Postage fees (ea)||Total|
|1 - 50||$0.30||$6.30||$330.00|
|51 - 100||$0.20||$6.30||$325.00|
|101 - 150||$0.10||$6.30||$320.00|
Overall, we’ve designed Pay Per Label to charge you only for the labels that you print so that as your sales fluctuate month to month, you aren’t stuck with a flat, fixed monthly subscription fee.
