What USPS shipping rates are available from Amazon?

Merchants who sell on Amazon's marketplace have access to shipping services through Amazon. Amazon quotes rates directly from carriers, such as USPS, and bills postage purchases to your seller account.

Amazon offers USPS's most recent published rates for a mix of commercial discounts on USPS services. These rates vary by service: 

While Amazon provides the lowest published USPS rates for each service, the Amazon platform has limited shipping tools. In contrast, merchants get rate discounts and save time with specialized shipping solutions through ShippingEasy

One other difference is that if you buy shipping via Amazon, they are supposed to cover claims if the customer claims they did not receive a package.  But you buy shipping elsewhere, it is not covered.   Insurance is too expensive for small items, do you have any thoughts on solving this?    Is there a way to buy shipping from Amazon through SE?

Hello Ray, and thank you for posting to our Support Center!

If you require insurance for small items, you might consider shipping via Priority Mail as that service does include a certain amount of automatic insurance. Those amounts are listed in the link below.

What USPS services include insurance coverage and offer additional insurance?

While you can purchase shipping from Amazon via ShippingEasy for any Amazon Prime orders you receive, unfortunately we do not currently have access to Amazon rates for regular Amazon orders.

That being said, however, our community has considerable influence on the course of our development. The more interest we see for certain features or integrations, the more likely they will be added to our app.

Would you consider reposting your specific needs and interest in purchasing Amazon shipping from your ShippingEasy account to our Feature Requests forums? These are monitored by our CEO and Product Team and used to prioritize future development work.

We look forward to seeing you in the Feature Request forum and taking an active role in helping to shape ShippingEasy!

Thank you and happy shipping!
