I get so excited about the future than reality beats me to death. 

I had three orders go poof via the USPS, car accident,  an emergency room visit , and my daughter throwing crazy fits about having to get up early for school. 

I am just glad that it all happened in a week and  now maybe more good will come!

First day of school !

Ugh... not the best week, huh?

But you're right - good stuff will come your way now. :)

Good Grief Chicka, that is a rough week so far!!! Bad things usually come in 3' hoping that stays true for you ;o)

Keep your chin up, tomorrow begins the end of the week and hopefully a great weekend for you.

Oh, yea, screw the USPS!!!

I just got Endicia, and even though I have to pay a monthly fee of $15.00, if you ship often enough, it's totally worth it because of the insurance. They use the USPS, but offer their own insurance that you can add to any shipment, and it's only a dollar or two, (instead of up to $12.00 that I've been quoted at the USPS for a international order, on top of the shipping price!) and you can add it to first class international!!!

Anyway, enough blabbing. I'd say, if you ship over 15 things a month that you'd like to have a bit of insurance on, it's more than worth it, and a good way to add value for your customer.

Wow Kathleen that is great news! I hope that you will find it as helpful and money-saving as I have. It took me a while to really get the hang of how their software works, but once I did it's super simple.
