Greenest Way to Ship

Every time you ship using ShippingEasy’s One Balance wallet carriers, USPS and UPS, from November 11, 2022, to January 12, 2023, your shipments are automatically carbon-neutral! Learn more about ShippingEasy's Greenest Way to Ship program.

All ShippingEasy plans include a USPS One Balance account at no additional cost. As our technology partner, Stamps.com enables purchasing USPS labels through ShippingEasy with its label server. View Stamps.com's Terms of Service.

If you have an existing USPS Stamps.com account, it cannot be connected to ShippingEasy. To access discounted rates in ShippingEasy, you must open a new USPS account through ShippingEasy.

Notes about One Balance

Cannot use a P.O. Box to Register a One Balance Account

When creating a ShippingEasy One Balance account, you cannot use a P.O. Box for your address. If your business only has a P.O. Box address, you can enter the address for your local post office instead.

To avoid registration errors, make sure the Post Office address validates with USPS by using this validation tool: USPS ZIP Code by Address Lookup

Remove a One Balance account from ShippingEasy

If your One Balance account has been closed, you may wish to remove it from your ShippingEasy account. This allows you to open a new One Balance account.

To remove a closed One Balance account from ShippingEasy, email support@shippingeasy.com with your Account ID. Our Customer Success team will be able to disconnect the account.

Once the account has been removed, you will have the option to open a new One Balance account for free.
