How do I buy postage online?

Can I order stamps online?

It is simple and straightforward to order stamps directly from USPS. Just browse their very broad selection, add the ones you like to your cart, complete your purchase, and wait for them to arrive (usually in a week or so). But if you need postage right away or are interested in saving postage costs, it’s worth taking a look at other options.

You can print your own stamps easily with PitneyShip—up to 25 per sheet on your laser or inkjet printer, or even entire rolls using a special printer that is available in our shop. Just log in to your desktop app or PitneyShip, then note the stamp sheet’s unique serial number. Once you’ve selected your options, click “Print” and you’ll get your stamps.

Note that these are not Forever Stamps, which means that when the Postal Service changes its rates, you will need to print postage correction stamps to use with the older stamps you have already printed. This is just as easy as printing regular stamps.

You can also bypass stamps entirely and print postage directly on shipping labels using PitneyShip. This is often best for businesses and others who require bulk mailing.
