Second, I never got the label and the site won't let you reprint (even though the site states you can reprint within 24 hrs). Lies! Used sample print before completing the purchase to verify the label would fit on the regular printer paper, but when I completed the label purchase, the print preview changed to print the label on half of the page. Once you make any adjustments to the print setup you CANNOT reprint and must request a refund that takes the post office 2-3 weeks to approve and then another 4-6 weeks for the money to be returned. Customer service closed on the weekend so no support!

I'll be reporting this scam to my bank and the BBB. Why would you change my printer settings so you can purposely take my $ in hopes I'll likely forget in 8+ weeks. On top of that my card was charged 4 times for 1 label! NEVER AGAIN And I've used many eCommerce sites that email you the label so you have more than one chance to print it in case something goes wrong. In this case, it is obvious they set it up like that for a reason...to take your $... OH and to tip it off I clicked the button the cancel, received confirmation I canceled my trial...and then got an email saying thanks for upgrading from the 17.99 to the 24,99 package and I will be charged today so I literally canceled my account and was told I upgraded instead!!!!

Do not give this company credit card information. I was charged $10 for allegedly purchasing 27 stamps, despite my only provided sheet of 9 stamps! This is a scam! Even the customer service reps, though very understanding, said there is no vehicle for refund, despite offer.

    When I signed up with Stamps.com I thought I was dealing with an arm of the USPS. WRONG! They make it appear that they are actually affiliated through their site design. After many months of being billed $17.99 I find that they have me in a PRO service. I did NOT sign up for. Their support said it was their policy to put every new account in the PRO service as a default. Even though I only spend a few dollars in postage (Paid separately). Please be VERY wary of this outfit. Their business model is NOT customer oriented and definitely not affiliated with our proud national postal service. My credit card company is investigating them and have disputed my payments.

    I paid $87 for overnight shipping through UPS. I dropped package off Friday morning and it was not delivered until Monday. UPS delivers to me on Saturday all the time. They would not refund my money for the missed shipping date. The option for Saturday delivery was not available to check when I selected overnight. It said in the application that one day delivery was tgee we estimate of arrival. They refuse to refund me.

    Stamps.com is a scam. They were charging me for over 2 years for an account I never signed up for totaling over $500. When I noticed the charge it was extremely hard to get someone on the phone and it took multiple calls to get a straight answer. I still have not received a refund despite being told that I would be receiving it AND was charged again even after shutting down this account. This company needs to be shut down.

    Do not use Stamps.com at all! For the few months I used it the process was slow no matter the device or printer that I used it on. The customer service is extremely slow and it seems their system is not up to date. I cancelled my account the day before the next subscription and they still charged me for the month but at double the cost ($36.34). When I contacted them via email they sent me a statement and noted that it was because I had not paid previous months. One of those months is for the upcoming month (which is what I canceled) and the second for July. Yet I have the bank statement and my expense report on stamps.com shows that I paid so I’m still unsure of how they came up with that information.

    After not getting another response I finally called stamps.com only for them to tell me that I was still charged for the upcoming month yet I can’t even use the services. They did refund me for the double charge of July, they’re just not holding themselves accountable for their system that charged me after my cancellation. If you’re a business, don’t waste your time with this company. Try Shippo or anything else but stamps.com and save yourself the hassle.

    I signed up for a free account with the trial. 2 months later I see I'm being charged 17.99 a month for the pro package and I've never used the site one time. I called customer service. I explained that I created the account to check them out and never wanted to end up paying a monthly service fee. They wouldn't refund me any of the fees but they canceled my account for me so they said. Here we are 6 month later and I noticed I am still being billed! Don't even make an account with them. The services suck that is why I never used it. Just use your PayPal account shipping. It's cheaper and they don't scam you.

    I cancelled my Stamps.com account because I found that I could get the same rates if I print postage through eBay when selling – that's for FREE, no monthly subscription! I'm still waiting on my account balance refund, it's been over 4 months! I was said to get my refund within 4-6 weeks. Terrible company, terrible experience.

    I received a mailer around the beginning of June 2021 that looked as though it came from the USPS. It included several blank sheets of self-adhesive stamps, and a bonus of $5.00 of free postage. During the sign-up process, I needed to give them my credit card information and make a purchase. I bought $20.00 worth of postage. Once my account was established, I could print my stamps. I printed 9 first-class stamps on the U.S. Flag stamp blanks, each with a value of 51 cents, a total of $4.59 cents in stamps.

    On July 5th, my credit card was hit with a charge of $19.43, for monthly fees and taxes. I discovered this on July 23rd, and immediately cancelled my account. The cancellation process was quick and easy, and after that I had no access to the website to get any documentation of my charges. I received an email informing me that it would take 6 to 8 weeks to receive a check. The day after my cancellation, I received another charge of $11.65, for the partial month of July. They can charge me instantly on my credit card, but I must wait for a check? There may be a business that could benefit from this "Company", but I would urge consumers to never ever fall for this scam.

    I have now paid $46.49 for NINE 51 cent stamps. $5.17 PER STAMP. I'll be informing my state Attorney General's office, the USPS fraud division, the California Attorney General, and for all you other victims, I urge you to do the same. Attached are copies the Welcome Letter, and my printed stamps (redacted, as I believe it is unlawful to copy US postage stamps).

    Stamps.com sends up "Free" stamps to try their service. Nowhere in the material does it warn you that you're signing up for a monthly membership. You only get notified when your credit card bill comes in. I phoned them immediately and they sent me a refund notice by email, then never gave the refund. My credit card company billed me twice for a service that I never even signed up for. Do not fall for the free stamps scam. You'll regret it.
