ShippingEasy will be converting our USPS postage provider to Stamps.com beginning in February. During the conversion process, the information in this article will change.

  • If your account has been converted to a Stamps.com account, please follow the steps under How to: Setup Automatic Postage Refills for my Stamps account.

How to: Setup Automatic Postage Refills for my Endicia account

Auto postage refill allows you to buy more postage whenever your balance falls below a certain level. You can set your auto refill level and the minimum balance that will trigger the refill.

ALERT: if you have the auto-postage settings in Endicia configured already, enabling Automatic Postage Refills in ShippingEasy may result in twice the charges when refilling your postage balance, and/or label failures in ShippingEasy.
  1. Click on POSTAGE AND CARRIERS at the top right of any page in the app.

  3. Now it will display two options:
    • The Minimum balance to trigger the refill.
    • The Refill amount to be purchased.

      Enter your preferred values.

      NOTE: by default, you may have a maximum Postage Balance of $500 for either Endicia account.  If the Refill amount plus the Minimum balance exceeds $500, then the auto refill will fail.  We recommend setting the Refill amount to $400 or less and the Minimum balance to $100 or less.
  4. Click the Save Settings button below your auto refill values. Next time you reach the minimum balance, your account will be replenished automatically.
