Stamps.com Eyes eBay Sellers, Again
Los Angeles-based PC-postage provider Stamps.com is looking to edge into the market for electronic postage on eBay, saying that it will waive service fees to eBay sellers signing up for its services between now and December 31st. Stamps.com said that it now supports retrieving orders, printing shipping labels, and posting back tracking numbers and other information back to eBay stores for sellers, a new feature of its latest version of software. eBay's own Internet postage service is powered by Stamps.com competitor Pitney Bowes, which provides U.S. postal service labels to eBay sellers by default. Back in 2003, Stamps.com had a deal with Paypal to include the firm's postage service for Paypal buyers, which was quashed when eBay purchased PayPal and went with Pitney Bowes instead.
