One strategy being used by a growing number of consumers is to go online. By visiting the Post Office that never closes www.usps.com - customers can calculate postage, find ZIP Codes or put mail on hold if going on vacation. They can also purchase stamps, track and confirm mailings, or even design, purchase and mail personalized greeting cards.

To ship online, all YOU need is a computer, printer and Internet connection to print out labels and leave packages for carriers to pick up and deliver. The easy-to-use online shipping service allows customers to mail without leaving their homes or offices.

With Click-N-Ship, customers can create and print mailing labels — with or without postage — and pay via credit card.

Packages can be sent to both domestic and international addresses. For domestic shipments, customers can choose Priority Mail service or Express Mail service. For international destinations, Global Express Mail and Global Express Guaranteed are available, International items weighing more than 16 ounces must be presented to a postal retail counter in person.
