hi, there might have been similiar threads to this but I didn't find one that answered all my questions so I hope someone can help me out, thanks in advance. i read the post about digital scales so i'm considering setting up a home mailing system, but I have no idea how it works. I understand there are several options out there, if you have used either one or know anything about it, please let me know. Stamps.com/ Pitneybowes.com I always see offers for free scales, supplies, etc and it seems like such a wonderful deal, but is it really all that great? I know that PB charges a a $19 monthly fee, what is the monthly fee for stamps.com?? I read somewhere that some places make you responsible for damages on their scales which can run up to several hundred dollars, so after you cancel your service with them, you have to send the scale back? Paypal postage I know theres an option on paypal to buy postage , does anyone know how that works? Do i buy my own personal scale and buy postage off off paypal,what about the shipping labels, will any lexmark lable be ok?
