SAN FRANCISCO, July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NextAdvisor.com, a leading consumer and small business information web site, announced today the launch of its new online stamps category, providing in-depth, independent reviews and comparisons of the best online stamps services. NextAdvisor.com's editors tried out the three top services to determine which provided the best value and what users can expect from each. Stamps.com, Endicia and Pitney Bowes' pbSmartPostage were all carefully tested and reviewed, with Stamps.com emerging as the top overall choice.
With online stamps services, users can print exact postage straight from their home or business computers with a regular printer. These sites make shipping easy by calculating postage for you - all you need is a scale, which is included in two of the services' plans. In addition, subscribers get special perks like shipping discounts, free USPS supplies and instant tracking information all without driving to the post office.
"More than ever, business owners are looking to the cloud for tools that provide real benefits to their operations," said NextAdvisor.com's President, Erik Larson. "Online stamps is yet another cloud service that can cut expenses and make their offices more efficient."
As with all of NextAdvisor's reviews, there were many factors that went into each service's overall rankings. The reviewers signed up for each online stamps service and used them as a consumer would. They looked at everything from the value, site navigation and types of features, to the ease of the sign-up process and helpfulness of the customer support. The reviewers printed postage from each of the services to test how intuitive the process is for each. They focused heavily on how user-friendly and useful the service is for both individuals and businesses. "We want people looking for an online stamps service to know exactly what they can get out of each provider and find the right one to fit their needs," said Larson.
This new category will be added to NextAdvisor.com's small business resource center, where readers can come to find reviews and comparisons of the latest cloud services and advice on everything from Internet fax to business credit cards.
