Obtain proof of USPS postage refund | How To

When you cancel a label in ShippingEasy that was generated through USPS from ShippingEasy One Balance, a refund is automatically requested. However, it can take 14 to 24 days to process the refund. Once approved, your refund(s) will be automatically deposited into your postage balance.

USPS requires 10 business days to process the postage refund on their end, as they need to ensure that the tracking number for the cancelled label doesn't subsequently show up in the mail stream.

Depending on how closely you would like to manage your refunds, there are a few options:

Click the blue text Show Passwords to view your password. We recommend copying and pasting your password into Stamp's log in screen.
